Catholic Quote of the Day — from Pope St. John Paul II

Pope St. John Paul II

Pope St. John Paul II


“Jesus Christ meets the man of every age, including our own, with the same words: ‘You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.’ These words contain both a fundamental requirement and a warning: the requirement of an honest relationship with regard to truth as a condition for authentic freedom, and the warning to avoid every kind of illusory freedom, every superficial unilateral freedom, every freedom that fails to enter into the whole truth about man and the world.” (Pope St. John Paul II, Encyclical Redemptor Hominis, 1979)


The Optional Memorial of St. John Paul II (1920 – 2005) is October 22.
