“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be grounded down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society.” – Pope John Paul II
Inspired by this ….some MNE’s got to go to Rome!
… we had a blast,
…got to shake hands with someone very special.
It was the feast of The Little Flower: patron St. of Missionaries!
“You greatly delude yourself and err, if you think that one thing is demanded from the layman and another from the monk; because all must rise to the same height; and what has turned the world upside down is that we think only the monk must live rigorously, while the rest are allowed to live a life of mediocrity.” ~ St. John Chrysostom
