14 OCTOBER 2012. In these first days of the year of faith, I will begin a prayer effort that Catholics take more advantage of the opportunities to truly learn the depth and beauty of the faith from reasoned truth.
St. Thomas Aquinas taught, while God reveals articles of faith to us
through Divine revelation, some of those articles of faith can be
learned without the benefit of Divine revelation (e.g., the existence of
God, who was discovered by Aristotle, although Aristotle did not call
Him by the name of the Israelites--I am) and some of those articles of
faith cannot be penetrated by the human mind and can only be known by
Divine revelation (e.g., the Holy Trinity and the Incarnation). For the
endeavors of the faithful in this Year of Faith, how better to engage
with the Church than to truly explore this integrative relationship of
faith and reason?
Stay tuned . . . .
