The Scripture states that faith without good works is dead, which is the message of today. How will put our faith into action is what is important.
In this homily, Father Steve discusses the sisters of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. He explains how one sister had an active life and the other had a contemplative life. While there are merits to a contemplative life, that life alone isn't good enough. We are challenged to put our faith into action.
The kingdom of God isn't a life only after death, it is in your midst today, by your actions, by what you build, and how you make the presence of God known.
