Isms that blind us to the Prism of God's Truth!

    On the feast of one of the first women Doctors of the Church Saint Teresa of Jesus, the Holy Father issued his 13th encyclical on the foundations of faith and reason entitled Fides et Ratio. Today we continue with the sixteenth part of this lengthy and important encyclical in installments spread out over several issues. The seventeenth installment begins the seventh chapter Current Requirements and Tasks focusing on part two of The indispensable requirements of the word of God in which the Holy Father warns of the dangerous philosophies many embrace in trying to reach the truth and, by so doing, can easily be blinded to the infallible truth by fallible philosophies that do not blend with faith and reason. For those wanting to read the entire encyclical, go to Fides et Ratio For the seventeenth installment, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.
