Novena to Mary, Mother of our faith –Day 2- Pope Francis's encyclical on faith, Lumen Fidei - Totus2

Day 2, Novena to Mary, Mother of our faith. Quote from Papa Francisco's encyclical on faith, Lumen Fidei: "Faith opens the pathway before us and accompanies our steps in history. This is why, if we want to understand what faith is, we must recount its course, the way of believers, testified in the first place in the Old Testament. A unique place belongs to Abraham, our father in faith. In his life an overwhelming fact happens: God gives him the Word, reveals himself as a God who speaks and who calls him by name.Faith is linked to hearing. Abraham does not see God, but hears his voice. In this way faith assumes a personal character. God is thus not the God of a place, nor the God tied to a specific sacred time, but the God of a person, (indeed) the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, capable of entering into contact with man and establishing with him a covenant. Faith is the response to a Word which summons personally, to a You who calls us by name." Music performed by seminarians Daniel W
