Does Seeing Equal Believing?

“How is that you, Voino-Yasenetsky, pray by night and cut people by day?”

“I cut people on behalf of their salvation,” replied the priest, “and in who’s name do you cut them?”

“How can you believe in God? Have you seen Him?”

“No, I haven’t seen Him. But I have operated on the brain many times and opening the skull I’ve never seen a mind there. I’ve never seen a conscience either. Does that mean that they don’t exist either?”

St. Luke of Simferopol, Archbishop and Surgeon
