“Fidelity expresses constancy in keeping one’s given word. God is faithful.” These words from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (paragraph 2365) remind us that because God is faithful to His promises, we can and must be faithful to ours. Like God, we make promises and commitments to others, not to things but to persons. In Baptism, God promises us that as His adopted children, we will be able to live our lives on Earth in such a way that we can be united to Him forever in Heaven. We, in turn, promise to accept the graces He gives us to live as His witnesses in the world. We all know what it’s like to make and keep a promise, and to have promises made and kept to us. (And likewise, the pain caused by broken promises.) In response to the tremendous faithfulness of God, we should make our own this declaration of the psalmist: “The Lord is my portion; I have promised to keep (His) words.” (Psalm 119:57)
