Devout Faith Reflects the Maker's Mind

It is a mistake to suppose that Catholics, say, who habitually make use of particular objects and images in their devotional lives, or act as though there were a geography of salvation, with some places being more spiritually imbued than others, are necessarily weak believers, needing props for faith. Indeed, the capacity of ordinary Christians to define and express themselves through the repertoire of material culture - over against a high culture or a mass culture of a more hegemonic kind, it may be - is an impressive manifestation of the virtue of faith.
