People today have doubt about what truth really is. You hear phrases like ‘my truth’ and ‘your truth’. But Jesus only spoke of Truth…and yes, it is His Truth.

Jesus gave his rules of life in the 8 Beatitudes in his Sermon on the Mount (Mt. 5: 3-10), the second of which is: ‘Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be consoled.’ I was captivated by this scene in the “Passion of Jesus Christ” by Mel Gibson. Jim Caviezel, playing Jesus, had such joy in his proclamation of the true blessedness of this mystery of life on earth.
