September: Month of the Holy Cross

Meditations on the Passion of Our Lord.


What is Truth, by the 19th Century painter Nikolai Ge.

"Truth is the conformity of the mind to reality."
-St. Thomas.

"You are a king, then!" said Pilate.

Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."

"What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him. 39But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release 'the king of the Jews'?"
(St. John 18: 37-39)
