The verse for the Gospel Acclamation at Mass yesterday was simple and direct.
Alleluia, alleluia! Your word is truth, O Lord: consecrate us in the truth. Alleluia!
The truth, of course, sometimes is too direct for us. It can make us feel uncomfortable, even we know it comes to us from – as – the Living God.
- (If you do!) why do you choose truth?
- In what way does the Lord consecrate you in the truth?
Truth betrayed. St Peter denies Jesus. (Sacred Heart and St Theresa, Coleshill).
