Understanding: Beyond Faith

______________________________________________________________

Faith is the theological virtue to believe in God, all He has said and revealed, and the Church proposes, while Understanding is a gift of the Holy Spirit to ensure our Faith.

Wisdom makes the soul responsive to the Holy Spirit in the contemplation of God to use His ideas to judge His creation, while Understanding allows us to penetrate such ideas to become convinced about the Faith.

We can draw conclusions in the Faith to gain a deeper meaning from man’s role in the world and in his relationship with God. Natural reason covers the material world, while Understanding guides our actions with God.
