Lent Reflections: Feb. 11, 2016

“Faith is nothing more – but how much is this – than a motion of the soul toward God. It is not belief. Belief has objects – Christ was resurrected, God created the earth – faith does not. Even the motion of faith is mysterious and inexplicable: I say the soul moves ‘toward’ God, but that is only the limitation of language. It may be God who moves, the soul that opens for him.”

From “My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer” by Christian Wiman
