Today the Catholic Church celebrates the feastday of St. Anselm of Canterbury. Anselm was born in Aosta in Italy in or about 1033 AD. He was a philosopher and theologian. Following the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, he found himself made bishop of Canterbury.

Perhaps his best known proposition was: Does faith seek understanding, or does understanding seek faith?

A very valid question in today's world. The Catholic view is that belief points us and brings us to insight.

Anselm died in Canterbury in 1109.
