Back to following the way
Eric Hodgens, retired Melbourne priest, scans the history of faith and its articulation and finds that Pope Francis is engaging in articulating faith in a new way in an age of secularism.
Before they were known as Christians they were Followers of The Way. Now, after fifteen centuries, the Church is trying to return to walking that way again. There are two definitions of faith:
- commitment to someone or something; believing in; the heart dominates.
- accepting an idea as true; believing that; the head dominates.
