Faith and works

From the Curt Jester:

Some months back Sen. Kerry criticized President Bush using the verse from the book of James about faith and deeds. In the last week he he has given two speeches using this phrase

"When we look at what is happening in America today we must ask ourselves, 'Where are the deeds?' " Mr. Kerry said to rousing applause. "The Bible teaches us: 'It is not enough, my brother, to say you have faith when there are not deeds. Faith without deeds is dead.' "

While I readily agree that I am a sinner who struggles to do what is right I would truly like to ask "my brother" John Kerry that if he has faith in what the Catholic Church teaches where are his deeds?
