Views 679


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jun 27, 2020, on how Faith is a theological virtue that requires the gift of God, first given in baptism, but requires that we exercise this virtue to make it grow to ever greater perfection of trust.

  • Faith is both a gift from God but it is also a habit of trust

  • Martin Luther denied that it is a theological virtue

  • Temptations to give up the faith and how to fight them

  • Why God sends trials

    • So that we can gain merit by walking in faith

    • Enduring them helps us grow

    • Enables to suffer for others

    • Experience the suffering and abandonment of Christ

Ave Maria!
