The Darkness of Time and the Light of Faith

faith Jan 07, 2021

In the encyclical put forth by Pope Francis back in 2013 titled On Faith (Lumen Fidei), he talks about faith as being a guiding light for us.  I remember reading it with my psychology lenses on, and had a few thoughts to share, especially as we now find ourselves in such dark times.

But are we really just “the attorney” or “the foodie,” “the addict,” "the schizophrenic," or “the...
