He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6: 8
In the light of faith … human concern reaches beyond man’s world to God and God’s world. Men meet not only to be together and to settle human affairs but also to worship. Human development is not only in skills and virtues but also in holiness.Bernard Lonergan, Method in Theology (New York: Herder & Herder, 1972), 116.
