Understanding Catholic Faith

Have you ever tried to learn something new, only to become frustrated because it seemed so difficult to understand? The "I can't" chorus becomes vocal not because we feel incompetent, but rather because we make things too hard on ourselves, or don't want to do what it takes to integrate them into our lives. We have built-in head trash that allows us to avoid certain tasks. We limit our ability to become better by choice, not by reason. Faith is not difficult to understand; it is challenging to follow. As Christians, our role model is Jesus Christ, Himself, not the average person walking down the street. In fact, the level of our belief correlates directly to how much faith we can hope to obtain.
