Faith is essential to our spiritual growth yet, too often, good Catholics hold misconceptions about faith's meaning or role - misconceptions that can lead to spiritual stagnation.
In these pages, Fr. Wojciech Giertych, OP, Theologian of the Papal Household, corrects prominent errors and clearly articulates what faith is, how it works, and how it may expand, or wither, within our soul.
He explains that the initial moment - the spark - of faith which ignites our entire spiritual life comes first from God. Because faith is a divine gift that is alive, we can explore the laws of its development and learn the principles of its nourishment in order to fully live a life of faith that influences our intellectual and moral life.
