The new enciclycal - faith as light

Nietzsche, the pioneer of non-faith for our era. Humanity renounced the search for a great light. This light is as a "spark, which then becomes a burning flame and like a heavenly star within me glimmers."

The light of Faith transforms those who love.

Unless you believe in this light, you will not understand.

With light, we associate "love" with "truth."

Faith and Reason always work together under the light.

Faith implies a journey and a discovery. Faith itself is not the completion or the arrival. It's a journey under the light.

Faith is always communal. This means that faith always requires the Church in the light. Since we live in time, the faith is handed down in community.

The sacraments are the chief means by which the light of faith is transmitted to others and through time.
