Loving the Bride, vol. 27

Something old....

"The obedience of faith" (Rom. 13:26; see 1:5; 2 Cor 10:5-6) "is to be given to God who reveals, an obedience by which man commits his whole self freely to God, offering the full submission of intellect and will to God who reveals," and freely assenting to the truth revealed by Him. To make this act of faith, the grace of God and the interior help of the Holy Spirit must precede and assist, moving the heart and turning it to God, opening the eyes of the mind and giving "joy and ease to everyone in assenting to the truth and believing it." To bring about an ever deeper understanding of revelation the same Holy Spirit constantly brings faith to completion by His gifts.

----Dei Verbum, from the Second Vatican Council.

Something new....

Something borrowed....

From the folks over at Catholic Exchange come two fine articles this week...

Came across this nice piece of apologetics from Mark Shea regarding Muslims and their faith in the One God, how it is alike Catholic belief in its orientation, and how it is differs from the fullness of Catholic understanding.

And this one on Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (aka Mother Teresa.) I highly recommend it, especially if you are a mother.
