Faith is a personal act — the free response of the human person to the initiative of God who reveals himself. But faith is not an isolated act. No one can believe alone, just as no one can live alone. You have not given yourself faith as you have not given yourself life. The believer has received faith from others and should hand it on to others. Our love for Jesus and for our neighbor impels us to speak to others about our faith. Each believer is thus a link in the great chain of believers. I cannot believe without being carried by the faith of others, and by my faith I help support others in the faith. ~ Catholic Catechism, Paragraphc 166

Lord, Make me an instrument of Your love. When I am tempted to be rude, help me be patient. When I am tempted to be selfish, help me to be kind. In all circumstance, help me to give You the glory and to grow in Your love. May I then take this love to other people. Amen.
