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
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.
