Introduction to Faith and Reason

The more we discover about the amazing world we live in, the more we come to know about the even more amazing God who created it.

Why does anything exist?

If we want to find a full explanation for any contingent being, we ultimately need a non-contingent cause.

What is Morality?

Love alone, set adrift from moral direction, can easily descend into sentimentality that puts us at the mercy of our feelings.

Can we be Good without God?

We cannot truly be good without God; but if we can in some measure be good, then it follows that God exists.

The Problem of Evil

The problem of evil is the greatest emotional obstacle to belief in God. It just doesn’t feel like God should let people suffer.

Why Goodness Depends on God

One of the commonest observations made by opponents of religion is that we don’t need God in order to have a coherent and integral morality.

In its fullest and most robust sense, religion is the human person’s being in right relation to the divine.

Catholic urban legends are myths of history created in the fervour of anti-Catholic passions. Unfortunately, they long ago became part of our cultural framework and are accepted today as undeniable truths.

God’s One Revelation

All the patterns and purposes of reality, “visible and invisible”, are brought together under Christ as Head.
