Thanks, I’m always impressed by the catechism, one of these days I’ll have to read it.
I’ve been thinking more about faith and talked about it on another thread here too. It does seem faith, grace and illumination are all linked and happen at the same time. They also seem to always be available but it is up to us to turn towards or away from it.
This turning towards faith and indeed God Himself is comforting and experentially true versus waiting or expecting some magical spark that doesn’t come. This waiting and doubting has been agonizing.
It’s realky comforting to embrace the faith I do have, that I choose to have rather than waiting for someone else’s version of it.
