THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH

I recently asked a class of 25, ” How would you define God in one word?” Every one responded, “Love”.  I agreed, but then asked, “Is God also truth?” They grumbled reluctantly, “Yes”. Truly, Jesus declared as much in today’s gospel, and even said in last Sunday’s gospel that he was the truth. Truth is the expression of what we know, and Christ is the expression of God on earth. Therefore, as Christians, what we know about Christ is supremely important. This is why adult religious education remains always essential to our Christian calling. Thus, we urge you during these forced days of hibernation to read, research, and reflect upon Jesus the Christ, church, and our Christian calling so you can express Christ on earth, so you can become truth.
