Light of Faith
I have seen many manifestations of faith during my travels over the past three decades.
Some have been spontaneous, some have been part of a liturgy,
some have been prescribed rituals,
Some have been in magnificent buildings, others have been outside under a tree.
Some people’s faith is embedded in the way they live their lives.
- Steve McCurry
To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.
To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
- St. Thomas Aquinas
Just as the body cannot exist without blood, so the
soul needs the matchless and pure strength of faith.
- Mohandas Gandhi
Pray as though everything depended on God.
Work as though everything depended on you.
- Saint Augustine
Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.
– Rabindranath Tagore
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
- Helen Keller
What is Faith?
When your good deed pleases you and your evil deed grieves you,
you are a believer.
- Prophet Muhammad
God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities,
great potential strength and ability.
Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers.
- Abdul Kalam
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once
accepted in spite of your changing moods.
- C.S. Lewis
The smallest seed of faith is better than the largest fruit of happiness.
- Henry David Thoreau
“…there is a God, there always has been. I see him here, in the eyes
of the people in this [hospital] corridor of desperation.
This is the real house of God, this is where those who have lost God will find Him…
there is a God, there has to be, and now I will pray, I will pray that He will forgive that
I have neglected Him all of these years, forgive that I have betrayed, lied, and sinned with
impunity only to turn to Him now in my hour of need.
I pray that He is as merciful, benevolent, and gracious as His book says He is.”
- Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
If it can be verified, we don’t need faith…
Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason.
Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and
ambiguities and sudden, startling joys.
- Madeleine L’Engle
