Celebrating Thanksgiving should call to mind the many blessings Christ has bestowed upon us. However, many of the blessings we’ve enjoyed in the past are at risk. We can no longer sit idly by and watch.
Thoughts For Today
Relativism undermines the purpose of the human intellect, which is to seek, find and know the truth, most especially the ultimate Truth: God. Consequently, it is not only an affront to human dignity but also damages individuals and society, working to prevent people from attaining their destiny in eternal communion with God.
In my first few weeks of working as an intern at a children’s school, I came face-to-face with the demands of truth. I quickly realized how some of the things the school taught these young children were not only incompatible with what is true but dangerously harmful.
On the night before the paschal feast, seated at supper with his disciples, Our Lord declared “I am the way, I am truth and life.” They were in the presence of truth Himself, of life Himself, and they would soon see what the world thinks of both life and truth. The next afternoon, he was, at the behest of a mob, sentenced to death and executed as if he were no different than the thieves crucified beside him.
“Come, follow Me.” Have you heard those words? If you haven’t, you’ve not been paying attention. Maybe you’ve been too immersed in the noise of the world. Maybe you’ve plugged your ears. Maybe you’re afraid. Hurt. Injured.
