Truth Possesses Us

>> Readings
 

2 July 2018

The opening prayer of Mass speaks of the light of faith:

“O God, who chose us to be children of light, grant that we may always be seen to stand in the bright light of truth.”

As children of light, we understand that truth possesses us, not so much that we possess the truth.

Ideologues and fanatics claim to possess the truth. A Christian claims that the truth possesses her.

Ideology is about control. Truth is about liberation. There is a world of difference between the two.

Bathe us, Lord, in the light of your truth.

Amen.
