Fides Quarens Intellectam

 

Credo Ut Intelligam

 

‘I do not endeavor, O Lord, to penetrate your sublimity, for in no way do I compare my understanding to it; but I long to understand in some degree your truth, which my heart believes and loves. For I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand.’

 

                                                 -- Saint Anselm of Canterbury

 

Faith should not seek after answers because answers,  being final, only give rise to arrogance and bigotry.  Faith rather should be ready to accept God's gifts of light and understanding that are always open to further growth and greater understanding in the future.
