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 and makes 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).
