Faith is primarily caught – and not taught. We certainly can learn about faith and all of its dogma and doctrine. We can hear its precepts and learn its prayers. However, the faith that goes deep is one of how we live and be in relationship with others. Here is where the virtues of love, patience, kindness and compassion are the heart of a lived faith. My parents and family and friends passed this type of faith down to me. I am forever grateful for their lived example.
