Our witness to the power of Faith reminds us over and over again that only God Is God.  No possession, no other experience or relationship is as necessary or as good as God.  Faith in God liberates us from the sad mistake of imposing divine expectations upon one another or upon material things.  Faith in God then allows us to give real value to everyone and everything that enters our lives.  Faith in God repudiates despair. Faith in God frees us from sins and addictions.  Faith in God shows us the significance of all our decisions and undertakings.  Faith in God reveals the wonder of life and the splendor of creation.  Faith renews our understanding of the scriptures and creeds that the Church has always proclaimed.  For Christian believers, living and dying are really only acts of faith.  Making room for God, trusting in God, letting go and letting God be God are all profound expressions of faith.  Jesus said: Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Have faith in God and faith in me. (John 14:1)
