Happiness Level Four – The Gift of Faith
We enter into Happiness Level Four through the gift of faith. Faith opens up the reality of God and the whole body of truth which He has given to His Church. The gift of faith enables us to perceive reality as it truly is. It guards us for a salvation which will be revealed at the end of time. And so our faith is a source of great joy even in the midst of our present and future trials and temptations.
To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
– St. Thomas Aquinas
Without having seen Him you love Him; though you do not now see Him you rejoice with unutterable and exalted joy. As the outcome of your faith you obtain the salvation of your souls
– I Peter 1:8-9
PRAYER: O my God, I firmly believe that you are one God in three divine persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe that your divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because you have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
