Isn’t the believer’s response to grace by faith a “work”?

Q: Isn’t the believer’s response to grace by faith a “work”?

A: Faith is a virtue that is the result of cooperating with God’s grace.

Faith is also a free-will response to grace.

Grace always precedes faith. Without grace, there can be no saving faith.

Infant baptism as routinely practiced in the Catholic Church is the only authentic demonstration of salvation with no personal works at all, since the infant can do nothing for himself and is wholly dependent on the grace of God and the faith of the Church for his salvation.

So much for all those who say Catholics “work” their way to Heaven!
