“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 119:89-91




Your Word, O Lord,

for ever stands firm in the heavens:

Your truth lasts from age to age,

like the earth You created.


By Your decree

it endures to this day;

for all things serve You.


– Psalm 119:89-91 (GP)






Wonderful, isn’t it,

how God’s Word remains valid,

continually attesting to His unfailing power

and unchanging care!


God’s truth is unparalleled,

and He continues to speak to us

– to those who want to listen –

through Holy Scripture.

He continues to nourish us

through His Divine Word,

and to lead us to the truth.


When Jesus Christ came among us

He fulfilled the Old Testament,

and we, as Christians,

honour and revere the Old Testament,

and interpret it through Him.


The Old Testament prepares for the New

and the New Testament, therefore, fulfils the Old.

The two shed light on each other;

both are the true Word of God.






“All Sacred Scripture is but one book,

and this one book is Christ.”


– Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC134)






Your Word, Lord, is the truth.

It is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path!
