Then Abraham said, “If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.”
Luke 16:31

As a reporter, I once interviewed a priest who experienced a dramatic conversion. Before that, he had regularly gotten into serious trouble. He wanted nothing to do with the Catholic faith that his mother continuously urged him to practice. As compelling and joy-filled as his change of heart was, he said that, as the years went by, the impact of the experience lessened. While he would never forget it, he stayed strong in the faith by working on it every single day.

We don’t need to look for spectacular miracles, although God does provide them on occasion. We simply need to “listen to Moses and the prophets,” Jesus and the apostles, our Blessed Mother, the saints and other holy people, and then put our faith into action, especially by helping those most in need.

How can you help the Lazaruses in your life?
