Definition of faith

The foregoing analyses will enable us to define an act of Divine supernatural faith as "the act of the intellect assenting to a Divine truth owing to the movement of the will, which is itself moved by the grace of God" (St. Thomas, II-II, Q. iv, a. 2). And just as the light of faith is a gift supernaturally bestowed upon the understanding, so also this Divine grace moving the will is, as its name implies, an equally supernatural and an absolutely gratuitous gift. Neither gift is due to previous study neither of them can be acquired by human efforts, but "Ask and ye shall receive."

The: habit of faith and the life of faith

a) We have defined the act of faith as the assent of the intellect to a truth which is beyond its comprehension, but which it accepts under the influence of the will moved by grace and from the analysis we are now in a position to define the virtue of faith as a supernatural habit by which we firmly believe those things to be true which God has revealed. Now every virtue is the perfection of some faculty, but faith results from the combined action of two faculties, viz., the intellect which elicits the ae in act, and the will which moves the intellect to do so; consequently, the perfection of faith will depend upon the perfection with which each of these faculties performs its allotted task; the intellect must assent unhesitatingly, the will must promptly and readily move it to do so.lief


We are learning about FAITH. We made up an assembly about faith.Faith is what in your everyday prayer.

DIG DIG DIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DIG DIG DIG!!!
“WHAT?” I said.”We are going to dig for worms?”I included.Mrs Tui said we are digging for worms.”But why?” I said.So I stomped outside like the feet of a giant walking down the road in the wind.But I felt like I was going to sneak back inside because of the WORMS!!!.”Stop Phoenix stop touching let go of the shovel.”I told him.”NO”.He says to me.We went to find a shady area for us to dig away into space.So Room Seven and I were digging away.


“Come down to this end Lavinia!.” Says Salamona.So we followed Lavinia like little ants following the leader.We barged in between a group.”Sorry”.I say.We continued to dig,dig,dig but still no more worms.Are you kidding me!?.The ground was dried like a solid rock we can’t lift up.But Catherine came in like a strong woman and digged away.


After that little space we digged on,we kept on moving which was not really  cool at the moment.Suddenly I turned around, I saw Genevieve with a water bucket.I yelled out “Genevieve,Genevieve,Genevieve over here bring that whole bucket of water here”.So she ran over to my group like she’s been caught from a thunder storm. She tipped it in while I was starring at nothing.It was my turn at least to dig so I digged and digged but nothing was there but the problem was that big ROOTS were in the way.But the excitement was... I FOUND A WORM!!.At least we found TWO worms.How cool was that?.But the problem was that we caught one long earth worm with blood.And one was okay because it was short.

After a tiring experience,I think it was pretty cool finding earth worms.We ran like the wind back to class and got on with our learning.So rain come and make the earth worms grow.DIG,DIG,DIG,DIG,DIG,all day long.

Our First time at Basketball.

Today we started with Basketball. Our first day of our new sport. We had a coach that use to play basketball. But he said he retired. We had to be extra quiet because the parish has mass today. We were near the courts.

His name was coach Bruce and our other coach was late and his name was coach Wayne. He is our instructor.

After our time of fun we had to end ourselves with a game called shoot the ball. Dorothy and Lavinia’s team  unfortunately won the game. But i had fun though even if we lost. I was thinking to myself why is this intresting to me?I still have a chance of playing basketball next week.
