A Reflection

Absolute Truth

There is absolute truth.
God is absolute truth.

This God we can never fully know
Is the only absolute truth.

We are made in the image of God.
As we grow in understanding ourselves.

We grow in understanding this immutable God.
Who is first and foremost love.

Prayer of Thomas Merton

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in itself please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
Thomas Merton
