Faith is both a gift of God and an authentically human response – a recognition of God’s call in one’s life and a free decision to follow this call by accepting and living the truth of the Gospel. As such, faith is living and active, sharing many of the qualities of living things: it grows and develops over time; it learns from experience; it adapts to changing conditions while maintaining its essential identity; it goes through seasons, some apparently dormant, other fruitful. … Like all living things, a living faith needs nourishment, which the mature adult disciple finds above all in union with Christ, the way and the truth and the life.
