An analysis of these elements is one of the most difficult tasks that one could attempt to make. At the same time, it is one of the most useful and vital ones. Our people sometimes do not know their faith. They sometimes recite the Creed without knowing what they are saying. They consider all these things that they read some kind of inaccessible mystery of our religion that is there for us just to read but not to know what it is all about. By the way, sometimes religion is combined with an attitude of this kind. And our faith, when it is rendered into a religion, resembles something like that.
