6. Cause of Faith

1. What is proposed for man's belief as the object ofsupernatural faith, is revealed by God. The truths of supernaturalfaith surpass the power of human reason to discover. Man is movedinwardly by grace to accept what is divinely proposed for belief.Therefore, faith is infused into the soul by almighty God.God is the cause of faith.

2. Thus, faith is a gift of God. Even lifeless or formlessfaith, whichis not the virtue of faith, is God's gift.For a gift is a gift, even when it is mistreated and spoiled by thereceiver.

"The supreme perfection of man in this life is to be so united to God that all his soul with all its faculties and powers are so gathered into the Lord God that he becomes one spirit with him, and remembers nothing except God, is aware of and recognises nothing but God, but with all his desires unified by the joy of love, he rests contentedly in the enjoyment of his Maker alone."
St Albert the Great
