.- Bishop Claudio Jimenez of Caacupe and President of the Bishops Conference of Paraguay reminded Paraguayans this week that “faith in God should lead us to transform the world in which we live.”

During a Mass in honor of the Crucified Christ, the most popular devotional image of Jesus in the country, the bishop said the faith must gradually lead each person to carry out good and important things for the world in which he or she lives.

”Faith without works is dead; on the other hand, faith with works is a living faith, an active faith, a working faith, that is, a transforming faith,” he emphasized.

Bishop Jimenez added that it would be very easy for Christians to just wait for everything to fall from heaven.  “Those kinds of Christians are not pleasing to God.  He has given us a mission; He trusted in us and desired that we help Him build together His kingdom of love, honesty, truth and holiness,” the bishop stated.
