“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth;” said Pope John Paul II. Reason, therefore, is intimately connected with faith, and faith is intimately connected with reasoned things like science. Unlike popular opinion today, both faith and reason are necessary to understand truth.
One of our greatest challenges is the “widespread lack of confidence in truth”. Many people believe that only things which can be measured are true and that everything else is opinion or superstition. Reason, however, allows us to see the great order in the universe and know there must be mind that created it so. Truth exists beyond science, and God also exists.
