ST. FRANCIS XAVIER
Matthew 7:21,24-27
We have a habit of equating religion with a set of beliefs. But today Jesus is saying something different. He says religion has to do with how we live, not only what we believe in. Beliefs are important but it is our deeds that embody our faith in God. You may recall the words of Forrest Gump: “Stupid is as stupid does.” Today Jesus is saying: “Faith is as faith does.”
