Believe and Understand

You believe because you can see me.
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.

John 20:29

St Anselm

I am not trying Lord,
To penetrate your sublimity,
For my understanding is not up to that.
But I long in some measure
to understand your truth,
Which my heart believes and loves.
For I am not seeking to understand in order to believe,
But I believe in order
that I may understand.
For this too I believe
that unless I believe,
I shall not understand.

St Anselm of Canterbury
