Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

Friday, May 10, 2002  

A friend of mine asks me today what the Catholic stand on man's ability to comprehend God is. What came to mind was the following from the Catechism:

Man's faculties make him capable of coming to a knowledge of the existence of a personal God. But for man to be able to enter into real intimacy with him, God willed both to reveal himself to man, and to give him the grace of being able to welcome this revelation in faith.(so) The proofs of God's existence, however, can predispose one to faith and help one to see that faith is not opposed to reason. (CCC 35)

This seems to indicate that Man should be able to use his natural faculty of reason to arrive at the conclusion that God exists.

But can man actually comprehend the will of God?
