Words from Pope Francis

The Christian heart is always full of joy. Always. Joy received as a gift and kept in order to be shared with everyone.16 hours ago
Do not underestimate the value of example, for it is more powerful than a thousand words, a thousand “likes”, retweets or YouTube videos.2 days ago
Jesus entrusted to Peter the keys to open the entrance to the kingdom of heaven, and not to close it.3 days ago
God knows better than we do about what we need. We must have faith, because his ways are different from ours.4 days ago
If evil is contagious, so is goodness. Let us be infected by goodness and let us spread goodness!5 days ago
Let us be moved by the Holy Spirit in order to be courageous in finding new ways to proclaim the Gospel.6 days ago

LORD of the Harvest,

BLESS young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call. Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things. 

INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love and giving – 

for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.

INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you.

UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace. Amen.

                                                – Pope Francis
