Why We Should Stop Saying “My Truth”

It’s common today to hear people say; “Maybe that’s true for you, but it’s not true for me.” This makes sense when it comes to our favorite ice cream flavor, but doesn’t account for objective things like science and mathematics and makes no allowance for transcendentals like Goodness and Beauty.

In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” Today, Fr. Mark-Mary shows us how to focus on Jesus as the Truth, and ensure that we don’t attempt to put ourselves in the place of God.
