Homily Summary 1 February
Faith begins in our mind. We use our minds to ask why are
we here on earth? Why are we alive? What purpose is life
for?
Then faith in God moves to our heart when we love Him.
Then faith moves to our actions as we go to live out that
which began in our mind and moved to our heart.
