The Pope offered this reflection today before praying the midday Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square. He drew his commentary from today’s Gospel, from the seventh chapter of Mark, wherein Jesus responds to a rebuke from the Pharisees…

Why the Catholic Bible

Jesus said that the truth will set you free. Jesus gave us the magisterium to ensure that the truth would be preserved so that we can take advantage of this promise. The truth then can prove to be the wisdom of God and everything noble. We have the fullness of the truth in the Catholic Church. Rejoice!
