Something you’ve probably heard before is “the truth hurts”. Now this may be true, but stop and think for a minute how perverse and far from the Lord we must have strayed to have arrived at such a phrase entering into common use. In a more perfect world, the truth ought never to be hurt. Only in a world filled with lies, concealment and falsehoods that is something truly threating or painful. As believers in Christ, we ought not fear the truth but welcome it, not hide from it as has become the custom, but face it with courage.
Lord of Heaven, You Who is all mighty and everlasting, grant me the courage to face the evils and lies of this world and stand up for what is true and virtuous. Help my battle against the dishonesties within this world and bring forth Your light amidst the darkness. For Your work and gospel is the truth, Your salvation our reality. In the name of The Almighty Father, let Your Essence reign, Amen
