“Although I have lived through much darkness, … I have seen enough evidence to be unshakably convinced that no difficulty, no fear is so great that it can completely suffocate the hope that springs eternal in the hearts of the young… . Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son.” - Pope John Paul II

"…no man can hope for eternal reward unless he follow in the blood-stained footprints of his Savior…

…”If we suffer with Him, we shall also reign with Him.” (2 Timothy 2:12) Christ’s labors and sufferings, accepted of His own free will, have marvelously sweetened all suffering and all labor. And not only by His example, but by His grace and by the hope held forth of everlasting recompense, has He made pain and grief more easy to endure; “for that which is at present momentary and light of our tribulation, worked for us above measure exceedingly an eternal weight of glory.” (2 Corinthians 4:17) …”

-Rerum Novarum, Pope Leo XIII (May. 15th, 1891)

The greatest deception, and deepest source of unhappiness, is the illusion of finding life by excluding God.

Blessed Pope John Paul II

what I love about him is that he fostered such hope and unity for all faiths, that is something we so desperately need to grasp as Christians, regardless of what you believe & where you are with God, this man is an inspiration. The world lost such a great soul when he passed. <3

You are NEVER too young to make a statement, stand up or stand out. Profess what YOU believe. Be BOLD. Be LOUD. Be PASSIONATE. Be PROUD. Embrace the beauty of life and all it has to offer. But don’t settle for mediocrity. Strive to make this world a better place. One day at a time. If one will stand apart, more will follow. Before you know it, you’ll be leading an army.

God is calling us to do great things.
"Be not afraid!" -Pope John Paul II
