What is Faith and Believing?

The Catechism states the following about believing and faith, “Believing is possible only by grace and the interior helps of the Holy Spirit. But it is no less true that believing is an authentically human act. Trusting in God and cleaving to the truths he has revealed is contrary neither to human freedom nor to human reason. Even in human relations it is not contrary to our dignity to believe what other persons tell us about themselves and their intentions, or to trust their promises (for example, when a man and a woman marry) to share a communion of life with one another. If this is so, still less is it contrary to our dignity to “yield by faith the full submission of… intellect and will to God who reveals”, and to share in an interior communion with him.” (CCC 154)

If you think the Holy Spirit is calling you and opening your heart please, contact Frs. Leo, George or Patty.  Our Catholic Christianity is based on Scripture and Tradition.  It is so rich it can seem complicated.  The RCIA, Religious Education programming and Sacramental preparation programs are intended to help us understand our faith better and to know, love and serve God by knowing, loving and serving one another.
