Anselm: believe to understand

Sunday, April 21, 2013
    Feast of Anselm, Abbot of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1109
Evil men do not understand justice,
    but those who seek the LORD understand it fully.
    —Proverbs 28:5 (NIV)
    For I seek not to understand in order that I may believe; but I believe in order that I may understand. For this also I believe,—that unless I believe, I should not understand.
    ... St. Anselm (1033-1109), Discourse on the Existence of God, Chicago: The Opencourt Publishing Co, 1903, p. 7 (see the book)
    See also Prov. 28:5; John 7:16-18; Eph. 4:17-18; Col. 1:9; 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, strengthen my belief.
