Searching for Truth?
Jesus Christ proclaimed that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). The search for truth requires courage, patience and openness to overcoming our own prejudices and pre-conceived notions, so you can embrace the truth fully, whenever and wherever it is found. The late popular TV personality Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “It is easy to find truth; it is hard to face it, and harder still to follow it.”
There are many ways in which we can grow in our knowledge of the truth:
– Bible Study. The Word of God is the basis for our faith and our understanding of how to live our faith. The Catechism states (CCC 131): “And such is the force and power of the Word of God that it can serve the Church as her support and vigor, and the children of the Church as strength for their faith, food for the soul, and a pure and lasting fount of spiritual life.”109 Hence “access to Sacred Scripture ought to be open wide to the Christian faithful.”
