Why is Faith a Virtue? Do We Need Faith?

Fr. Mike Schmitz

Have you heard the phrase, “never doubt in the darkness what you knew was true in the light?” Do you find yourself intellectually convinced that our faith makes sense but in times of difficulty, struggle to assent to those truths?

Today, Fr. Mike reflects on the virtue of faith and how we must engage not only our intellect but also our will to live out the fullness of our Catholic beliefs.
