Along with unconditional trust, good works of faith=Acts of virtue, are also necessary for the salvation of the soul.

Why? For faith without works is dead. For man is justified by works of faith and not by faith alone.

If you want to enter into eternal life, keep the commandments. Do them.

But when man is powerless and unable to justify himself through keeping the commandments,

how can he fulfill the necessary works of the law of God?

He is unable only for as long as he does not ask for this and does not pray about this.

‘You do not have because you do not ask.’ And ‘He who abides in Me, Jesus, bears much fruit.’

To be in Him means continually to be in His presence and unceasingly to ask in His Name.

‘If you ask in My Name, I will do it.’

Thus, it is through prayer that one acquires the ability to perform good works of faith=Acts of virtue.

Let us pray then for it gives life to faith, and through it, all the virtues are acquired by Acts of faith.
