July 22, Continuation of Pope Francis' Letter"Light of Faith"

Picture of our woods
Faith is like a path in the woods and obstacles have to be removed by love.

Can Christian Faith provide a service to the common good and to understanding of Truth?

Paul says, "One believes with the heart."
In the bible the heart is the core of the human person.

Faith transforms in the extent that we are open to love.

Faith knows because it is tied to love.

Only to the extent that love is grounded in truth can it endure over time.

If love is not tied to truth it falls prey to fickle emotions and cannot stand the test of time.

If love needs truth, truth also needs love.

Without love truth becomes cold.
Love is an experience of truth.

Knowledge lights up path in history.  In the Bible truth and fidelity go together.
The true God is the God of fidelity who keeps His promises and in time reveals His plan. 

Faith is a form of hearing as St. Paul says,"Faith comes from hearing.

Hearing God's word is accompanied with the desire to see His face.
