The Sacramental Character of Truth

You are invited to attend our next monthly meeting to be held on Friday, May 10th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. We will be discussing “The Sacramental Character of Truth” Rudy A. te Velde from the Fall 2023 issue entitled Commemorating Fides et Ratio (Volume 50.3).

Here are excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
Rudi A. te Velde, in “The Sacramental Character of Truth,” affirms the natural readiness of the human person for the appeal that truth makes upon him, which is one basic reason why revelation cannot but be meaningful for man. Universal truth invites and supports its free reception in human life, which for its part receives its own full significance through the person’s assent to what is. Moreover, since created reality sacramentally directs the knower to the God who transcends it, it is fitting that Fides et ratio could advocate for the safeguarding of philosophy as among the vital concerns of religion. “The encyclical suggests that the divine self-gift of truth in and through Christ, accepted and lived in faith, places human reason in a properly philosophical relationship with truth, that is, a relationship that assumes truth to be a presence that cannot be fully mastered and appropriated.”

We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. The Kateri Room is on your right before you enter the church proper.
