Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Feb 08, 2022, on the 11th Mark of Charity, on how Love rejoices in the truth, as he continues his series on the Marks of Charity (1 Corinthians 13:6)

Truth, that which conforms to reality, conformity of truth

Three kinds of truth, ontological (in the object), logical (intellectual), and moral (behavior)

opposite of logical truth is error, and opposite moral truth is falsehood

Satan created good but he chose evil

Sidelined the creator and made self the center of reality and thus distorting sense of reality.

Truth intimately tied to reality and salvation

I am the way, the life, and the truth

Reject truth and reject Christ, reject eternal life

Love truth, love Christ

Works that support the common good are rejoicing in truth

Caritas in Veritate, Benedict XVI https://www.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate.html

Charity and truth, are key to all recognition of the dignity of all people

Truth gives meaning to charity

Without truth, charity degenerates into mere sentimentality, which is the predicament we are in today

Word Love is distorted to the point that it means the opposite of what it originally meant

Sin is not love, but to say so is to be accused of hatred

becomes  mere power play that fractures society, paragraph 9

Tim 4 1-5 Preach n season and out of season for the time is coming when men will not endure sound teaching

Tiem to speak and time to be silent but this can be an excuse to fall into timidity

Will have God's blessing, but also tribulation in this life.
