Lumen Fidei: A Light for Life in Society

As we learn to get along in the family unit, we are given the will and means to get along with the human family.  Faith is carried into the world as naturally as it was held in the home.

The basis for this transmission is not a exclusively a sense of universal community, but additionally our belief in salvation history–that is, God’s desire for us all to dwell together as sisters and brothers.

This vision brings many blessings into our life, but at the same time it makes our life a blessing to others.  In this receiving and giving, life is truly good.  This is because the light of faith always reveals love.

If we remove love from the world, we all die.
