Only God can consecrate us in truth.

Jesus tells us: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John

14:6, jb). Jesus is the only way to the Truth and Life; He is the

Truth; and this Truth, this Jesus, who is the true Life, gives us

life eternal. We cannot attain this by ourselves. We must be lifted

up to it by Jesus, through His supernatural help, which does not

naturally belong to us, but is always readily available to us if we

so desire.


Only God can consecrate us in truth. “Consecrate them in the

truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17, jb).

The reality is that we are not determiners of truth. Truth is not

something we have the power to invent, but an objective reality

that we are called to accept and live. This truth does not oppress

us, but rather frees us and makes us happy. “The truth will make

you free” (John 8:32, jb).


Well, the truth is that there is one true God and He is the

Truth. There are objective truths that apply to everyone, too

numerous to even begin to spell out here. The best place to find

these truths enumerated is in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
