 ARCHDIOCESE OF BOMBAY

 

The heroes of the faith in Chapter 11 of the Letter to the Hebrews are truly inspiring.

Faith is seeing what others can’t see and knowing as real, the things that do not seem to exist in this moment. Faith is God’s vision or divine sight. Faith, according to the author of Hebrews, is not about distant reality but how our present actions and attitudes correspond to that reality.
