Blessed Frederick Ozanam
It's interesting that today's saint was a lawyer, teacher, husband and father. When Blessed Frederick was in law school in Paris, he formed a discussion society with people of other faiths. One member challenged him, "What do you do besides talk to prove the faith you claim is in you?" Ouch! Frederick immediately put his faith into action and formed the St. Vincent de Paul society to help the poor.
One more thing: In today's first readying, St. Paul asks us the same question. Is our faith all talk? Do I profess yet deny by my actions? How does my Christian faith show itself to others? What about if the 'others' you see all day are your children, the grocery store clerk, the mailman, the preschool teacher? How can I put my faith into action in my daily life? Feel free to leave ideas about your daily faith practice in the comment section!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for your divine justice and your infinite mercy. Help me to show my faith in you in the way I interact with my children and those around me each day. In your precious name I pray, Amen. Blessed Frederick, pray for me.
