Truth be Told

“What is truth?” (John 18:38) is a question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus during His trial. It is a part of scripture that I am sure many of us are familiar with and perhaps it was Jesus’ prior statement that puzzled him and made him ask that question.

Liturgical Reflection for 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time

There are many times that we do something wrong or make some nasty remarks. When asked to tell the truth, we even lie. Most likely we would remember how we felt after we have sinned.
