  • Homily at the Ordination of Deacons - Opus Dei
    him What can we do to accomplish the works of God Jn 6 28 he responded This is the work of God that you believe in the one he sent Jn 6 29 On other occasions the Gospel clearly states that sometimes Jesus did not work miracles because of his interlocutors lack of faith cf Mt 13 58 Faith is a gift which God bestows gratuitously on those who desire to believe and are disposed to welcome grace in their hearts and souls This virtue requires in first place an adequate knowledge of the objective contents of revealed doctrine in accord with each one s capacity this is the purpose of the Catechism of the Catholic Church or of its Compendium May we too try to read or re read them during this year in order to know better the doctrine of the faith and thus be able to transmit it to others Nevertheless to have what we might call a theoretical knowledge of the Church s doctrine is not enough Having faith in the Lord Benedict XVI explains is not something that solely involves our intelligence the area of intellectual knowledge rather it is a change that involves our life our whole self feelings heart intelligence will body emotions and human relationships 3 And he poses a challenging question However let us ask ourselves is faith truly the transforming force in our life in my life or is it merely one of the elements that are part of existence without being the crucial one that involves it totally 4 It is a question that entails a deep examination of conscience to which each of us has to respond sincerely Then we will discover that we can and ought to imbue our ordinary life with more faith seriously seeking to discover God who awaits us in the events of each day St Augustine said that believers grow stronger by believing 5 And St Josemaría added To live the faith is also to transmit it to others We need to walk alongside our friends and colleagues at work to know how to listen to the difficulties which the Christian message might raise for them to understand these friends and to show that we understand them and at the same time to pray intensely for them Only in this way will they feel understood and enlightened by our conversation and we will be able to transmit with affection and kindness the Gospel the living word of God opening to them the marvels of the Christian spirit which harmonises reason and faith which answers all the questions and calms all the anxieties of the human heart Thus we will help them to desire the sacraments Confession and the Eucharist and to prepare themselves adequately to receive them 3 The ordination to the diaconate and subsequently to the presbyterate adds to the common mission of Christians some specific features in which the faith of those who are to be ordained ought to be shown
