Ratio & Intellectus - “The Middle Ages drew a distinction between the understanding as raio and the understanding as intellectus. Ratio is the power of discursive, logical thought of searching and of examination, of abstraction, of definition and drawing conclusions. Intellectus, on the other hand, is the name for the understanding in so far as it is the capacity of Simplex intellectus, of the simple vision to which truth offers itself like a landscape to the eye. The faculty of mind, man’s knowledge, is both of these things in one, according to antiquity and the Middle Ages, simultaneously ratio and intellectus, and the process of knowing is the action of the two together.” Josef Pieper, Leisure: the Basis of Culture, p. 28


“Understanding seems to indicate simple and absolute knowledge. And one is said to understand (intelligere) because in some sense he reads (legit) the truth within (intus) the very essence of the thing. Reason, on the other hand, denotes a transition from one thing to another by which the human soul reaches or arrives at knowledge of something else. For this reason, Isaac says that reasoning is the progress of the cause to the thing caused.” St. Thomas Aquinas, De Veritate, 15 - https://isidore.co/aquinas/english/QDdeVer15.htm


“Jesus answered and said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born* from above.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a person once grown old be born again? Surely he cannot reenter his mother’s womb and be born again, can he?” Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.” John 3: 1 - 3 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/john/3


“Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him” Matthew 7: 9 - 11 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/matthew/7


“with compassion I will guide them; I will lead them to streams of water, on a level road, without stumbling. For I am a father to Israel” Jeremiah 31: 9 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/jeremiah/31


We experience Joy when “we are the sparkle in someone’s eye” - Dr. Allen Shore

“For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God on the face of [Jesus] Christ” 2 Cor 4: 6 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/2corinthians/4


“The LORD bless you and keep you! The LORD let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you! The LORD look upon you kindly and give you peace!” Numbers 6: 24 - 26 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/numbers/6


“You make him the pattern of blessings forever, you gladden him with the joy of your face. For the king trusts in the LORD, stands firm through the mercy of the Most High.” Psalm 21: 7 - 8 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/psalms/21
