Dear Parish Family,
I am regularly amazed at man’s capacity to call evil good and to call good evil. I’m not surprised that it happens — after all, our fallen nature frequently drives us to justify some things for which there is no justification. I’m just amazed at how good at it some people are.
For those of us who desire to do good and to walk in the way of peace, we must be diligent to not be lead astray by those who sugar-coat lies and make them sound sweet. In our age, this has become a major industry with professional working around the clock to sway our opinions and shape our desires.
In the midst of the cacophony of modern life, Christ alone leads us to the fullness of truth. Christ tells us, “For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice. ”
Let us strive always to hear Christ’s call and to live in the truth, which is the path to everlasting life.
