Public Opinion vs. The Truth06-25-2017Rev. Msgr. Ellsworth R. Walden
In order to be truly free and live responsibly and fully, our freedom has to have a solid foundation of truth. And there is no greater source of truth than Jesus Christ. In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us, “Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.” (Matthew 10:26-28) The more we spend time with Jesus in prayer and reflection on His words in the Scriptures, the clearer the truth of who He is and who we are empowered to be as His followers becomes. There are certain basic truths that are the foundation of who we truly are as human beings, created in the image and likeness of God. Those we love and who love us help us to become the best we can be. Left to ourselves it is all too easy to be misled and confused about basic human core values.READ MORE
