Faith vs Faithfulness

I have suggested this before but haven’t figured out how to do it. I would like to build a meter where when you enter church you put your finger in the meter and it measures your faith. Let’s say the meter shows green you are good to go. If it comes up yellow, you should probably go to confession as soon as possible. But it comes up red sirens go off, lights start flashing, and the meter won’t let go of your finger until Father comes to get you. In this way you will know where your faith is.

Faithfulness is also a measure of faith. A person who is faithful thinks of others first. They are sensitive to the feelings of others. They offer prayers, they pray for each other. They are generous and lend without expecting payback. They attend church and sing with abandon. They lead the prayerful. They lead with rosaries. They help with committees, decorating, Bible studies, religious ed and they donate generously.

Where do you see yourself?

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
