Faith requires reason; it gains from serious thought and critical reflection. It grows by being reflective and serious and in dialogue with other forms of thinking.
Faith provides some ideas for the human mind that reason couldn't give; it increases the scope of reason. A Catholic university offers a dialogue between faith and reason in which it is understood both must play an essential part.
