Faith is reason grasping objective reality
"the point of departure of faith is an event, the encounter with an objective fact; it is not a doctrine or an abstract culture or a past, but a real presence, here and now, a phenomenon of different humanity, that is the only one that corresponds to the nature of what happened in the beginning...because Christianity is such an exceptional, objective fact before us, that exalts the 'I,' it unleashes all the criticality spoken of these days, all the capacity of reason" (Fr. Julián Carrón from Experience:The Instrument for a Human Journey, pgs. 28-29).
Veni Sancte Spiritus, veni per Mariam!
