Peace is first and foremost personal before it is social

Peace demands a mentality and a spirit which, before turning to others, must first permeate him who wishes to bring peace. Peace is first and foremost personal before it is social. (Pope Paul VI)

Do you want to fast this lent?

Fast from hurting words and say kind words. Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude. Fast from anger and be filled with patience. Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope. (…) (Pope Francis)

Little hearts

Those little things

A holy Christian life is made up of a number of small things: Little words, not eloquent sermons; Little deeds, not miracles of battle or one great, heroic deed of martyrdom; The little constant sunbeam, not the lightning. (Andrew Bonard)

Mary knows we are born with broken hearts into a world raging with strife. Our Lady wants nothing for herself but everything for her children. She brings us to Jesus that He might protect us and bind our wounds and that we might choose to walk with Him. Thank you Mary!

The castle shone like a diamond and no matter how far away in the kingdom one was, the sparkling light from the mountain could always be seen. The kingdom was lush with fertile valleys, meadows, vineyards and orchards which produced, by the work of human hands, nourishment for those who lived there. (…)
