Rediscover Your Faith in a Mature and Conscious Way

"And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard?" (Romans 10:14).

It is unquestionably the duty of man to orient his person and his life towards God . . . Man turns properly to God when he acknowledges his supreme majesty and supreme authority; when he accepts divinely revealed truths with a submissive mind; when he scrupulously obeys divine law, centering in God his every act and aspiration; when he accords, in short, due worship to the one true God by practicing the virtue of religion. (Encyclical Letter of Pius XII Mediator Dei, 13)
