Faith Works

February 13, 2009 by

What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

— James 2:14-17

Since arriving in Concordia, Kan., in 1883, the Sisters of St. Joseph have demonstrated their faith through works in cities and towns large and small, in hospitals and schools, in food banks and refugee centers, as teachers and healers and counselors in an unimagineably large array of settings. And as the sisters celebrate their 125th anniversary, their works continue, through the quiet prayer of sisters at the Motherhouse and in missions radiating out from Concordia to as far as Brazil.
