Feast of Saints Philip and James, Apostles

Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me.”

 Greater than a New York Times best-selling self-help author, greater than a guru, wisdom figure, or spirit guide, greater than the greatest humanitarian, do-gooder, or peacemaker, Jesus Christ is Lord.  He is God.

All of these others mentioned above might have some claim – through God’s Providence – to a way, or a truth, or a life.  But, Jesus Christ, is the fullness of all of those, in Himself.

Lord, while I may seek wisdom where true wisdom may be found, help me to turn also and first to you, as I come to know you more intimately through Scripture and prayer.  You are my Way, my Truth, and my Life.

Saints Philip and James, pray for us!
