FAITH AND BELIEF

I am reminded of two phrases that capture the epistemology of the faith with the Latin phrase fides quaerens intellectum  (faith seeking understanding) by Anselm and with the Greek phrase credo ut intelligam (believing in order to understand)  by Augustine. We know because has given us revelation and also because he has given us the capacity to understand what he has given to us. BRING IT ON!
