Schmemann on Faith

“Faith is not the fruit of intellectual search, or of Pascal’s ‘betting.’ It is not a reasonable solution to the frustrations and anxieties of life. It does not arise out of a lack of something, but ultimately it comes out of fullness, love and joy. ‘It is meet and right’ expresses all this. It is the only possible response to the divine invitation to live and receive abundant life.”

From “For the Life of the World”
