“Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion. You do not regard a person’s status but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.” (MK 12: 14)
“You are a truthful man,” “you teach in accordance with the truth”—it was an opinion of people who “were sent to Jesus to ensnare him in his speech.” It wasn’t an opinion of friends but of enemies. Our Lord told us about Him that He is the truth, and life and the way. It is so important for us to be always honest, to live in truth—that way, we will be closer and closer to Him.
“May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to his call.” (Gospel Acclamation)
