Quote of the Day (Fulton Sheen, On Intellectual and Moral Preparation for the Faith)

“The moral preparation for the Faith or for making Divine Truth dynamic in us is as important as the intellectual; both kinds of readying should go together, the Wisdom and the Love of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit are equal in the Trinity. If the reason is neglected, a different sort of error follows. Those whom the moral development outstrips the intellectual generally end in a religion that is negative, critical, and pharisaical, or else in. a vague, emotional piety without content—as those who have intellectual without no growth become skeptics, cynics, and doubters. We can never love until we know; but once we love, then it can increase knowledge.”—Venerable Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), Lift Up Your Heart: A Guide to Spiritual Peace
