In his new encyclical on faith released today, Pope Francis speaks of faith as a
""supernatural infused virtue." It's good to get this reminder that above all, faith is a virtue. As a supernatural virtue, it's a gift of God. We can't give it to ourselves, nor can we acquire it by any human effort.
As a virtue, faith transforms us. Francis also stresses that faith works through love.
It is only through love that we can really believe, because faith enables us to entrust ourselves to God.
