The Way To Come To True Life

“...If, then, you are looking for the way by which you should go, take Christ, because He Himself is the way: This is the way; walk in it. ...It is better to limp along the way than stride along off the way. For a man who limps along the way, even if he only makes slow progress, comes to the end of the way; but one who is off the way, the more quickly he runs, the further away is he from his goal.

If you are looking for a goal, hold fast to Christ, because He Himself is the truth, where we desire to be. My mouth shall reflect on the truth. If you are looking for a resting place, hold fast to Christ, because He Himself is the life. Whoever finds Me finds life, and receives salvation from the Lord. 

Therefore hold fast to Christ if you wish to be safe. You will not be able to go astray, because He is the way. He who remains with Him does not wander in trackless places; he is on the right way. Moreover he cannot be deceived, because He is the truth, and He teaches every truth. And He says: For this I was born and for this I have come, to bear witness to the truth. Nor can he be disturbed, because He is both life and the giver of life. For He says: I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.

~St. Thomas Aquinas
