Consecrated in Truth
Message of the Holy Spirit of 18 May 1999
“In the Gospel you have read Jesus’ words: ‘And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth’ (John 17,19 NRSVCE). Jesus spoke about the offering of one’s life that every Christian must do and through which every Christian becomes a truly consecrated person. Unfortunately, not all Christians are consecrated, and not all who claim to be consecrated are truly consecrated. This offends God as their offering is impure. An impure offering is worse than lying. Whoever says to be offered to God and then does not live in the truth but in the darkness is worse than the one who chooses the darkness. This is what Judas did and many others continue to do like him.
