Throughout our lives, we bear witness to our faith, core beliefs and values – how we act and interact on a daily basis. As St. John Chrysostom reflects… “Then, they say, show it by your works. For your life testifies of the opposite – that you do not believe. We, and not just the martyrs, will be witnesses for Christ. They are called martyrs because they endured everything to speak the truth when told to reject the faith. So, we must not be overcome when our passions tell us to reject Him.”
We are approaching the Lenten Triodion – four Sundays that precede the beginning of Great Lent. Let us focus on Stewardship as a beneficial and transformational change in our lives, especially by showing it through our works!
