“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

– Isaiah 55:8

We don’t always understand everything there is to know about our Catholic Faith. We often struggle to get a grip on exactly what it is that God is asking of us. Unraveling Our Faith is an attempt to look at some of the precepts, dogmas, documents, and other “good stuff” of our Catholicism. Stop, reflect, and hopefully get a little deeper grasp of God’s Ways.

There are several seminal writings of faith that have defined the teachings of Christianity, and of the Catholic Church over the years; The Bible (Sacred Scripture), The Didache (Teaching of the Apostles), St. Augustine's The Confessions, just to name a few. Along with those, there is another writing, that according to most Church Scholars is the blueprint of Catholic Theology - The Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas.

There is a Latin thought, Deus Providebit, which means God Provides, that I firmly subscribe to. I wanted to try to give you the reader at least a glance at St. Thomas' work, and I pondered, how can I do this - "Deus providebit." I stumbled upon a site that accomplishes exactly what I wanted to offer to you.
