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 derive a deeper meaning for man’s role in the world and his relationship with God through the Faith. Natural reason covers the material world, while Understanding guides our actions with God.
