Dominican theologian Father Rodel C. Aligan told participants of a Truth Conference on October 5 that “evil is parasitic on the good and must survive by twisting things that are good in themselves;” it has to come across as truth, but a truth that is told, “in the wrong way, at the wrong time, or in the wrong context,” spreading confusion through fake news and disinformation.
Either way, this “underhanded” tactic effectively , the priest added.
Reflect, today, upon this powerful resurrection appearance. As you do, ponder whether or not you have allowed our Lord to speak to you in the same way that He did to these disciples, and whether or not you have truly internalized all that He has spoken to you and explained to you.
Reflect, today, upon how willing you are to speak the hard truth in love when a situation requires it. Do you have the courage you need to charitably speak an “offensive” truth that needs to be spoken?
Reflect, today, upon the Truth as it resides in the mind of the Father in Heaven. How open are you to the Truth? How fully do you embrace all that God wants to reveal to you? Open yourself more fully to the Holy Spirit and seek all that He wishes to reveal to you.
