Faith

fr_johnJesus answered, ‘I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.’

‘Truth?’ said Pilate. ‘What is that?’ (Jn. 18:37-38).

Religion is the search to know, and the response to what we discover, about the Supreme Being ( the Ultimate Truth) in whom we live and move and have our being.

Because it demands a personal response, religion can be a very upsetting thing for me, involving sudden or gradual change in my attitude towards people & things, requiring decisions about lifestyle and the rearranging of priorities.

This is what we call conversion.

Without the latter, religion is just the means to achieving a personal ambition.

This is what gives religion such a bad name.

We have set up this website as part of our search for’Truth’ (God) and part of our response to belief in the existance of ‘Truth.’ It is our hope that your involvement in & contributions to this website will help us, & you in the search for truth.
