Truth may hurt

Regarding “Combating untruthfulness today,” by Father Eugene Hemrick, on catholicsentinel.org May 26:

Thank you, Father, for reminding us that “Practicing self-truth spills over into our work, family, government and church, generating the strength needed to fight today’s falsehoods and dishonesties.”

Jesus said, “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.” (Jn 8:32)

At The Willows, a treatment center for alcoholics, on a wall in the dining room is a poster that poignantly reflects the struggle: “The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.”
