Cheat Sheet of the Encyclical -Encyclical Letter of Pope Francis with Benedict XVI -Light of Faith

A Cheat Sheet of the Encyclical
God who said "Let light shine out of darkness has shone in our hearts." 2Cor v4-6
The pagan world had seen the cult of the sun god invoked each day at sunrise. Yet though the sun was born a new each morning it is incapable of casting light on all o human existence.
"No one ",says St. Justin the martyr ," has ever been ready to die for its faith in the sun."
Christians invoke Jesus as the true Sun.
Faith for the modern person thinks  that the light of faith was suffiecent for socities of old but no use for new times.
Nietzache says,"If you want peace of soul and happiness then believe but if you want to be a follower of truth then seek. For Nietzache belief would be incompatabile with seeking.
