7th Grade Girls Prove God Exists
Today in class the 7th grade girls learned how to prove God exists using St. Thomas Aquinas’ 5 proofs of God’s existence. With several simple experiments we were able to come to the conclusion, using our reasoning power alone, that God exists.
It’s great to see the girls get excited about learning how to share God with others who perhaps do not share the same beliefs. This quick lesson is a great opportunity to help them understand that our faith is reasonable.
Pope John Paul II stated in his encyclical Fides et Ratio:
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.
