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?


I mean that even non-intellectual types like myself try to find a meaning to our lives, otherwise we are, as I see it, nihilists who empty human existence of meaning, truth, purpose, and value.
