The Principal Speaks…..
“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth” (Ps 45-8)
Being truthful is one of the highest virtues of being human. To be truthful is to win favor of God. “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything” (Mark Twain). If you always speak the truth you can save yourselves from lots of trouble. A truthful person is never disturbed by fear and anxiety. Fear and anxiety enter the mind of a liar not a truthful person. Look around us, corruption has increased so much. And what is the main cause of corruption, lying. And this lying has given birth to so many evil activities around the world. People have become so selfish and greedy.
Truth is that which touches one’s heart and changes one’s life. Truthfulness has a deep impact upon our moral character. A truthful person is trusted in every work. He is respected everywhere. A truthful person has strength of mind and he lives a peaceful and happy life. His life and character become an example for others. He inspires others to be truthful. The character of a truthful person shines like gold. St Ignatius Loyola preaches that truth always ends by victory; it is not unassailable, but invincible.
To speak the truth is a duty, and we must never deviate from it. The truth is the highest attribute of God! On truth the whole universe is built. Truthful people are rewarded by God in heaven. Dear friends, let’s grow in this divine virtue of Truth and make it our greatest strength. As St. Marians, we are called to illumine the world around us with the light of ‘Truth and Love’ that’s the motto of our alma mater.
Wish you all a gracious and truthful New Year and the very best!
