Saint Francis Xavier, Priest

Is 11:1-10, Ps 711-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17, Luke 10:21-24

True faith

Faith is not knowing about God, but knowing God. The former is a function of the mind; the latter involves mind, heart and soul. The former is a product of intelligence; the latter is a product of grace. Only knowing about God leaves us vulnerable to the arguments of the intellectuals who deny God’s existence. Knowing God renders intellectual arguments superfluous; we enter into a relationship with One who supersedes the natural world, supersedes human intelligence, One who is transcendent. Knowing God creates a relationship of mutual love and intimacy.
