Questions, Questions

truthIn his encyclical last week PopeFrancis/Benedict XVI poses two questions that surely must be at the core of our understanding of the meaning of all human life: What is Truth? What is Faith? Or are they the same thing?

What is Truth?  - what we are told by the scientist?

What is Faith? - knowledge? superstition?


Life is about living a good life to the best of your ability. We are, however, only human and we make mistakes -- something I have to keep reminding myself of because I am my own harshest critic! But if on balance the good we do outweighs the bad, then we're doing OK.

Why do you feel that there has to be a meaning to life? Isn't the miracle of being alive and sentient and able to appreciate all the beauty and wonder of the world and the universe beyond it enough for anyone?
