Some things have to be believed to be seen.

Understanding is the reward of faith.
Therefore seek not to understand that you may believe,
but believe that you may understand.

Augustine

For those who believe in God, no explanation is needed;
for those who do not believe in God, no explanation is possible.

John LaFarge

The worst enemies of Christianity
are those who have tried to regularize it,
to take out its fantastic, peculiar qualities
and leave it no different from anything else.

Halford E. Luccock, Like a Mighty Army

The feeding of the five thousand,
that taxes our powers of belief to the utmost.
And yet, what is the feeding of the five thousand
compared with that patient process
by which vast plains of what shoot up and bud and mature, under God’s hand,
to make the slices of bread which you forgot to say prayers over yesterday.

Ronald A. Knox, Miracles
