Martin Scorsese, introduction to Silence

Christianity is based on faith, but if you study its history you see that it’s had to adapt itself over and over again, always with great difficulty, in order that faith might flourish.
That’s a paradox, and it can be an extremely painful one: on the face of it , believing and questioning are antithetical. Yet I believe that they go hand in hand. One nourishes the other.
Questioning may lead to greater loneliness, but if coexists with faith – true faith, abiding faith – it can end in the most joyful sense of communion.
