“It is not those who says to me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven…”This proclamation is some thing ironic. If this is the case, something might be wrong or lacking in my devotions and prayers. Faith without good works is dead, as Saint James would tell us (James 2:17). The good works that we could al ways do every day is to do the will of the Father, to listen to his words and act on them reli giously. The Father’s will is that we be filled with the spirit of the Kingdom and work to make that Kingdom a reality in our world.Act of charity is the heart and foundation of our faith in God. Charity hinges our faith in God and the actions we make to our neighbors. Our pious devotions ought to be accompanied al ways with corporal and spiritual works of mercy, out of love, out of charity. If we are able to do that, then we are like a strong city, a nation of firm purpose that is kept in peace, a house built upon a solid rock, so that whatever calamity would strike it, it would stand still until the end of time.
