Jesus Christ proclaimed that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). The search for truth requires courage, patience and openness to overcoming our own prejudices and pre-conceived notions, so you can embrace the truth fully, whenever and wherever it is found. The late popular TV personality Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “It is easy to find truth; it is hard to face it, and harder still to follow it.”
Where the Catholic Church Comes in…
Because God designed us to desire and seek the truth, He provided a special way to help us find it. The Catholic Church, comprised of saints and sinners and everyone in between, has been established by God to show us the way to truth and help us get to heaven.
This mission of receiving the truth and then faithfully handing it on to future generations was entrusted to the Church by Jesus Christ.
He declared: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20).
