The Sacred Heart of Jesus

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."

Matthew 11:28-30

Faith, Reason, and the Pursuit of Truth

Rev. Br. Raphael Mary Salzillo, O.P.

In the modern world there is much talk about the tension between faith and reason. Many are suspicious that the two are naturally opposed to one another or even inherently incompatible. However, the medievals saw no such conflict. On the contrary, faith and reason were viewed as two distinct but harmonious sources of truth that mutually enrich each other. So what happened? How did we get to where we are today? And how can a person seek the Truth with integrity in the modern world?

Come and join us as we examine the historical and philosophical roots of the conflict between faith and reason. All are welcome!

Brother Raphael Mary Salzillo is a Dominican friar and a Caltech alumnus (Lloyd House, 1998). He is currently studying to be a Catholic Priest at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, California.
