Solomon prayed: "...I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act. I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen...Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong."
Christ teaches in His Church both what is right, to lead us on the way to heaven, and what is wrong, that we may reject evil and its false promises which lead to depair and death. Let us be courageous in both seeking truth and living it, proclaiming by our actions the way of freedom and hope to a fallen world.
