Faith and Reason

Tiffany quotes Pope John Paul II encyclical letter, Faith and Reason
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves (cf. Ex 33:18; Ps 27:8-9; 63:2-3; Jn 14:8; 1 Jn 3:2).
And concludes
Regardless of one's religious origin, living is about living well. Living well means utilizing the gifts of universal conscience and righteousness for a greater purpose.
Amen, Tiffany.
