About this Blog
I, the author, am not a trained theologian, nor am I an ordained member of the clergy, but on my own initiative and out of shear enjoyment I attempt to share my faith to the best of my ability. I enjoy reading and studying theology and Church history. Most of the posts here at Faith and Reason are theological, spiritual, or religious in nature. However, some content is political or includes commentary on the culture at large. But this is always done in light of my Catholic faith. In everything that I present here I have attempted to apply my faith with sound arguments and logical reasoning. Thus the name of this blog: "Faith and Reason”
I write under the name Thomas. And so this blog is dedicated to three important saints who share this name:
The Apostle Thomas reminds us that some things are grounded in a simple Faith that defies human logic and cannot be explained except through trust in God’s Word. When the Risen Christ first appeared to the Apostles, Thomas was not among them. When told that Jesus had visited them, Thomas refused to believe unless he could touch the nail marks in His hands and probe the wound in His side. When Jesus appeared again He told Thomas, “Blessed are they who do not see, and yet believe.” We look to Thomas the Apostle to aide in our disbelief and to remind us that Faith can sometimes not be explained.
Thank you for visiting Faith and Reason, and please visit often.
