Catholic Word of the Day: REASON, 12-01-11
CatholicReference.net ^ | 12-01-11 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):

REASON

In general, the mind in its function of attaining the truth. Also the basis or evidence used by the mind in its pursuit of truth. It differs from the intellect, whose proper role is to perceive the truth, whether arrived at by a reasoning process or perceived immediately as intuition. Reason, therefore, is a process, where intellect is possession.

And for many mysteries there is no reason or reasoning. We just believe because of our faith.

Faith is reasonable, as you well know.
