Faith & Reliance: Dante’s Paradiso Canto XXIV

Dante’s Paradiso Canto 24 lines 83-85

….You have assayed this coinage,
its weight and metal content, accurately;
now tell me if you have it in your (purse) possession.

Dante is being interrogated by St. Peter on the topic of faith. He has acquited himself well with words. Now St. Peter wants to know if Dante’s words mean anything, does he actually have faith himself.

But, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8
