Unless you live out what and who you have received in the Mass, everything will be in vain. It is not enough to profess that we believe, but we need to put it into practice.
Saint Ambrose, whom we celebrate today, was a man who backed up his faith with good works. During this Advent season, let’s follow his model and put our faith into action. Brainstorm ways you and your family can do this together.
I pray you continue to live out your faith, building an example for others to do the same. God bless.
