Quote of the Week: Anselm of Canterbury



Anselm of Canterbury was not opposed to critical thinking, but he believed and taught the inconvenient truth that belief often precedes full understanding. If you struggle to understand all facets of your faith, don’t fret. You’re in good company.

“I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order that I may understand . . . if I did not believe, I would not understand. “

—Anselm of Canterbury
