  St. Thomas on faith (2)
However, it seems better to reply that this explanation of faith is the most complete definition of it--not in the sense that it is rendered in the form appropriate to a definition, but rather because it adequately touches upon all the things that are required for a definition of faith.
And so faith is said to be inferior to knowledge to the extent that it is of things that are not apparent, and superior to opinion to the extent that it is an argument.
Faith is called an argument in the third sense to the extent that faith is a sort of meager foretaste of the cognition that we will have in the future.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Faith
And though faith is so essentially of "the unseen" it may be that the peculiar function of the light of faith, which we have seen to be so necessary, is in some sort to afford us, not indeed vision, but an instinctive appreciation of the truths which are declared to be revealed.
If we regard faith precisely as an assent elicited by the intellect, then this bare faith is the same habit numerically as when the informing principle of charity is added to it, but it has not the true character of a moral virtue and is not a source of merit.
Indifferentism in all its phases was condemned by Pius IX in the Syllabus Quanta cura: in Prop.

 St. Thomas on faith (1)
Further, faith as it is commonly spoken of assents to a first truth because of that truth itself.
To the second objection one should reply that the reason why faith is not called an examined consent is that the assent (or consent) of faith is not caused by an investigation on the part of reason.
Therefore, that which bespeaks perfection, viz., assenting, is caused by the simple light, which is faith; but to the extent that that light is not perfectly participated in, the imperfection of the intellect is not totally removed, and so the movement of cogitation remains in the intellect without being put to rest.

 St. Athanasius & the Current Crisis of Faith
Pope Julius consistently and courageously upheld the cause of Athanasius and the faith of Nicea.
He subscribed to the condemnation of St. Athanasius and a confession or creed which had been framed by the Arians at Sirmium, though their heresy was not expressed in it; and he wrote to the Arian bishops of the East that he had received the true Catholic faith which many bishops had approved at Sirmium.
The answer is that they would recognize in the teaching of this confessor what the faithful of the fourth century recognized in the teaching of Athanasius: the one true faith into which they had been baptized, in which they had been catechized, and which their confirmation gave them the obligation of upholding.
