This web log is a place to conduct a conversation on the elusive nature or features of listening to and following God’s will. That is, it is concerned with the “how and why” of seeing with Eyes of Faith. Besides the “how and why” it is also about the “what.” What does one see in the world through Eyes of Faith? This component of the weblog is, alas, likely to be the preponderant content for some time. Seeing with eyes of faith is ultimately about viewing the world as a creature of a personal God.
In the Catholic, or Universal, Church, November 15th is the memorial of St. Albert the Great, known in Latin as Albertus Magnus, the 13th century theologian, philosopher and scientist. His title was based on the fact that he stunned his generation with the universality and depth of his genius. He was, in fact, another Aristotle. His studies encompassed nearly everything Aristotle studied, including physics, biology, chemistry, psychology, theology, philosophy, morality and politics.
