Theology is Faith seeking understanding.

Saturday, 11/4/17

If I last twenty-eight more days I'll be a priest for sixty-five years, and I have been going back over those years, looking particularly at how my attitudes towards our Faith have been changing,

In the first ten years we didn't have our own attitudes. We just gave our pat answers to any questions, and we would then say,  "Well, that's what our Catholic Church says,"

Then, ten years into my sixty-five years, I witnessed the theologians at Vatican II arguing over interpreting our Faith. That as made me bold enough to start thinking over  my own theology.

St. Anselm defined theology as "Faith seeking understanding," And that has put me into deeply pondering over how I see the Bible, the Mass, the hierarchy, and original sin.

I invite you to join me in pondering our Faith.
