Today’s Reflection December 3

Jesus is the man who is the incarnation of the Truth. For this reason, before identifying himself as the Truth, Jesus calls himself the Way. Jesus is the Way to the Truth . . . We do not seek solutions to the problems of life derived from religious sentiments, spiritual approaches, or philosophical convictions . . . In each circumstance of life, whatever it is, we seek not an answer but a Presence . . .We do not come together as Church to find intellectual answers to our questions about the meaning and purpose of life. This is to reduce the Church to an ideology. We come together not to find answers but to learn how to recognize and affirm a Presence . . . We come together as the Church to learn how to recognize the fact of this Presence, and to witness to it in any circumstance of life, especially when there are no answers . . . Jesus Christ is the way to the answer.

– Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete
