Holy See Act of Faith
“The Almighty One has not left us without light, without living testimony of His nature. It is His grace that reveals the oneness of Man’s thought, the source of the insight and Power with which we have written to Your Holiness.”
Saint Anthony, by Murrilo
Holy See Act of Faith
17th July 2013
In the name of Our Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, greeting!
From the Lumen Fidei:
Slowly but surely, however, it would become evident that the light of autonomous reason is not enough to illumine the future; ultimately the future remains shadowy and fraught with fear of the unknown. As a result, humanity renounced the search for a great light, Truth itself, in order to be content with smaller lights which illumine the fleeting moment yet prove incapable of showing the way. Yet in the absence of light everything becomes confused; it is impossible to tell good from evil, or the road to our destination from other roads which take us in endless circles, going nowhere.
There is an urgent need, then, to see once again that faith is a light, for once the flame of faith dies out, all other lights begin to dim. The light of faith is unique, since it is capable of illuminating every aspect of human existence. A light this powerful cannot come from ourselves but from a more primordial source: in a word, it must come from God. Faith is born of an encounter with the living God who calls us and reveals his love, a love which precedes us and upon which we can lean for security and for building our lives. Transformed by this love, we gain fresh vision, new eyes to see; we realize that it contains a great promise of fulfilment, and that a vision of the future opens up before us.
Our Act of Faith, is the result of mankind’s search for Truth within, a search for the Kingdom of Heaven, a search to renew Man’s life in the primordial source. It is, “born of an encounter with the living God who calls us and reveals his love, a love which precedes us and upon which we can lean for security and for building our lives”. Indeed, transformed by this love, we gain fresh vision, new eyes to see – the fulfilment for a Catholic Civilisation on Earth.
By the printed word we can access the lives of those who found and lived the Truth whilst the Church was engaged in a war for its survival. The Almighty One has not left us without light, without living testimony of His nature. It is His grace that reveals the oneness of Man’s thought, the source of the insight and Power with which we have written to Your Holiness.
It is Our Lord Jesus Christ, Known to us as our Mind in which our awareness arises, who places the stream of our consciousness in His light, who provides the surety that no human can provide. It has been shown to us that today’s ‘money’ binds no thing on Earth or in Heaven. This letter is our Act of Faith to grant a Debt Jubilee on 15th August 2013, the feast of the Assumption of Mary, 1700 years after the Peace of the Church. The Bishop of Rome can with faith and surety impress the Anulus Piscatoris and put the legal machinery that is already his by the grace of Christ, in motion by this Act of Faith and the enclosed Letter Rogatory.
