Thought of the Day May 5, 2022 Jesus, the Truth!

By 10:31 AM

During Pilate's interrogation of Jesus, Jesus made this revealing statement: "I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." Pilate's response was: "What is the truth?" Earlier Jesus told the Apostles: "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." The truth is Jesus, true God and true Man! Accepting and believing in the real person of Jesus, opens us to the further mystery of the Father and the Holy Spirit and the plan of God for our salvation. As we embrace the truth of who Jesus is, "the truth will set us free." There are many truths, but only  one Truth. It is in times of prayer and reflection that we will be able to draw from the well of the Truth, without depleting the source. With Paul we can say as we gaze and reflect on the Truth: "At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known." Only in eternity in the presence of God will we have a fuller understanding of the Truth. But the journey begins when we have that transforming encounter with Jesus, the Truth.
