"Non intratur in veritatem nisi per caritatem" -St. Augustine

Believing does not always mean to make up for a deficit of knowledge, but rather attaining the right stance to see that which appears. This rule applies not only to common perception, but most of all to what Pascal, following St. Augustine, calls "divine things." In faith, as in beholding a beloved or a work of art, what you see depends on how you stand in front of it.
