Setting the Tone

Men tend to lead with logic. It is hoped that insights about faith and reason in this blog will assist anyone with the sometimes difficult journey from the head to the heart.
These thoughts will set the tone nicely................

"Growth in faith is growth in the right perception of all reality."
Thomas Keating

"Faith devoid of reason becomes blind superstition. Reason devoid of faith becomes self-absorption with a detachment from reality."
George Weigel

“A madman is not someone who has lost his reason but someone who has lost everything but his reason” 
G.K. Chesterton


"Physical or moral law, to know what it is, to know the reality of things, to act in accordance with it, is to act by the reality of things. And that is sanity."
Frank Sheed

"It takes faith to believe in everything coming from nothing. It takes only reason to believe in everything coming from God"

Peter Kreeft

 "Faith and reason are two wings that elevate the soul of man to the knowledge and love of God."
Pope John Paul II

“Faith liberates reason from its blind spots and therefore helps it to be ever more fully itself. Faith enables reason to do its work more effectively and to see its proper object more clearly.”
Pope Benedict XVI
From Encyclical DEUS CARITAS EST

“Faith broadens the horizons of reason to shed greater light on the world which disclosed itself to scientific investigation."
Pope Francis
From The Light of Faith
