Love and Truth

St. John Paul II-Do not accept anything

January 23

“Do not accept anything as the truth if it lacks love. And do not accept anything as love which lacks truth! One without the other
becomes a destructive lie.”

–St. John Paul II at the canonization of
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

For Reflection:
Have I seen in the lives of others the reality of this quote? To what extent do my own understandings of love and truth need to be redefined? Have I fallen victim to a destructive lie due to my false definitions? I ask the Holy Spirit to guide me to all that is true, all that is lovely and all that is pure.

(Quote from Graceful Living)
