Saturday After Ash Wednesday

“Let us not make of faith an abstract theory where doubts multiply. Rather, let us make of faith our life. Let us seek to practice it in service to our brothers and sisters, especially those who are most in need.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: On a spectrum of abstract theory (faith as an idea to contemplate) to concrete activity (faith as an outward expression), where would you place your faith today? The Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are doorways into the Church’s wisdom about practicing faith as a way of life, opportunities to continue learning and growing in relationship with God and others through a religion that involves mind, body, and spirit. Which doorway do you tend to choose? Which practice do you tend to avoid or practice least outside of Lent?
