La Leçon de catéchisme (Catechism Lesson), 1890, by Jules-Alexis Muenier (1863-1942), oil on canvas, Musée des beaux-arts et d’archéologie de Besançon

Always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you the reason for the hope that is in you, but do so with gentleness and reverence.”

cf. 1 Peter 3:15-16


A daily morsel of Catholic education and faith formation.

Religious Truth

Truth vs. Opinion


Your truth may work for you, but it doesn’t work for me.


Truth is not a matter of individual opinion. If something is true in God’s mind, then it is true – regardless of whether we accept it or not.

… God is the source of all truth. His Word is truth. … Since God is true, the members of his people are called to live in the truth.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church (2465)

Today everyone wants to follow their own personal “truth.” Although this seems to work for a while it ultimately leaves us empty. Our hearts long for substance, not passing fads and fancies. Only God’s truth can satisfy the longing of our hearts.

thomistic institute | Fr. James Brent, O.P.

Skepticism and relativism are really forms of despair. In the philosophical tradition that comes down to us from Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, one of the fundamental convictions is that there is truth. Further, that this truth is eternal and that human beings are capable of knowing it.

thomistic institute | Fr. Thomas Petri, O.P.

Let us pray.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.


St. Michael the Archangel, by Reni Guido, 1635, 17th Century, originally oil on silk. St. Michael stepping on Devil’s head while holding his sword.

It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you.”

Saint John Paul II, pope


Jesus, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life (cf. John 6:68).


Be not afraid!  And may the peace of Christ be with you and your loved ones today and always.  Holy Family, pray for us.  Amen.
