— "They are already … on the path leading to faith"

"Because faith is a way, it also has to do with the lives of those men and women who, though not believers, nonetheless desire to believe and continue to seek. To the extent that they are sincerely open to love and set out with whatever light they can find, they are already, even without knowing it, on the path leading to faith."

— "The need for vigilance"

"Because all the articles of faith are interconnected, to deny one of them, even of those that seem least important, is tantamount to distorting the whole. Each period of history can find this or that point of faith easier or harder to accept: hence the need for vigilance in ensuring that the deposit of faith is passed on in its entirety."

— "Faith does not draw us away from the world"

"The light of faith is concretely placed at the service of justice, law and peace. … Faith does not draw us away from the world or prove irrelevant to the concrete concerns of the men and women of our time."

— "No refuge for the fainthearted"

"Faith is no refuge for the fainthearted, but something which enhances our lives."

— "A lamp which guides our steps"

"Faith is not a light which scatters all our darkness, but a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey."
