Capsule for the Day
St John Paul II opens Veritatis Splendour with these words. "The splendour of truth shines forth in all the works of God... Truth enlightens man's intellect, shapes his freedom, leading him to know and love the Lord. This truth isn't just a set of doctrines, it is Jesus the Christ.
In Him, through Him we come to know the Father for who He is, not who we imagine Him to be or want Him to be. For the Father is with us, but at the same time, He transcends us. Thus, He calls us out of ourselves to journey with Him into the fullness of life that transcends us.
This journey gives meaning to who we are and what we do. It opens us to the truth of who we truly are... That we are humans with a dignity and worth that transcends this present life. This journey helps us to appreciate the life of each and every one of us... we are good enough for God.
Fr. Francis Afu
