LivingIt 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 provoked 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 heart 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 ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.
-- Pope St. John Paul II

Pro-LifeWhose rights will we acknowledge? Whose human dignity will we respect? For whose well-being will we, as a people, assume responsibility? -- Former Governor Robert P. Casey
Theology of the BodyWe are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
-- Pope Benedict XVI
MediaThe Church can't change her response to Gutenberg's printing press, the radio, the television; they are forever fixed in history. But at the onset of this digital revolution, her response to New Media is wide open.
The world is waiting and listening in the virtual sphere. Will the Church remain silent, or will her voice be proclaimed from the rooftops (and the laptops)? Will she plunge the message of Christ into Facebook feeds, blog posts, podcasts, and text messages…? -- Brandon Vogt
Crisis InterventionNothing is far from God.
-- St. Monica
InspirationLet nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.
-- St. Teresa of Ávila
