Freedom’s not just another word

“Truth will set you free” and other heady thoughts about freedom are abundant in today’s gospel. Across the centuries, the Catholic Church has had a lot to say about freedom (though, admittedly, it also has remained silent at times when it should have spoken out). A foundation for much of that thought springs from the concept that God has granted human beings freedom to choose between good and evil, and the “more one does what is good, the freer one becomes,” as the Catechism of the Catholic Church puts it ().  Though current conditions require most of us to sacrifice some of our mobility and sociability for now, remember the real keys to freedom are truth and goodness. Have a little faith and see where it gets you.

TODAY'S READINGS: Daniel 3:14-20, 91-92, 95; John 8:31-42 (253). “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

The Irish pastor said, “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven stand up!” and the whole church stood up.  And he said, “And those who want to go to hell, remain standing!” At the back of the church, old Murphy remained standing.   The pastor said, “Murphy, do you want to go to hell?”  Murphy said, “No, Father… I just hate to see you go there all by yourself!”
