TRUTH

 
"Whoever does not enter the sheepfold through the gate but climbs in some other way is a thief and a marauder. The one who enters through the gate is shepherd of the sheep." —John 10:1-2
 

Are you being taught the truth in this book, One Bread, One Body? You need not be an amateur theologian and give your own opinion on this issue. You know from the Imprimatur stated in the front of this book that nothing in One Bread, One Body is contrary to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. This means that we who write this book have entered the sheepfold through the gate, that is, we are serving and teaching in the Church according to the will of Jesus, the Good Shepherd (see Jn 10:1-2, 7).

Because we are under the authority of the body of Christ, the Church, we can be sure we are under the authority of Jesus, the Head of the Church. As a result, you can be sure that nothing you read in One Bread, One Body is contrary to the teachings of the Church. This is a great beginning in helping you discern whether what you read in this book is true.

Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6). His "word is truth" (Jn 17:17). The Church is "the pillar and bulwark of truth" (1 Tm 3:15). Therefore, we can be men and women of the truth, and the truth will set us free (Jn 8:32).

 
Prayer: Holy Spirit, guide me to all truth (Jn 16:13).
Promise: "As I began to address them the Holy Spirit came upon them, just as It had upon us at the beginning." —Acts 11:15
Praise: Pope St. Pius V was as saintly a friar as he was a pope. He was known for his humility.
