I plead with you–never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged. Be not afraid.
Let us remember the past with gratitude, live the present with enthusiasm, and look forward to the future with confidence.
The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being.
Prayer can truly change your life. For it turns your attention away from yourself and directs your mind and your heart toward the Lord. If we look only at ourselves, with our own limitations and sins, we quickly give way to sadness and discouragement. But if we keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, then our hearts are filled with hope, our minds are washed n the light of truth, and we come to know the fullness of the Gospel with all is promise and life.
If you want peace, work for justice.
If you want justice, defend life.
If you want life, embrace truth.
Do not forget that true love sets no conditions; it does not calculate or complain, but simply loves.
Let science tell us what and how. Let religion tell us who and why.
Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.
Holiness is not reserved for a small number of exceptional persons. It is for everyone. It is the Lord who brings us to holiness when we are willing to collaborate in the salvation of the world for the glory of God, despite our sin and our sometimes rebellious temperament.
It’s better to cry than be angry, because anger hurts others while tears flow silently through the soul and cleans the heart.
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
There is no evil to be faced that Christ does not face with us. There is no enemy that Christ has not already conquered. There is no cross to bear that Christ has not already borne for us, and does not now bear with us.
Allow the light and the healing presence of Christ to shine brightly through your lives. In that way, all those who come in contact with you will discover the loving kindness of God.
Nobody is so poor he has nothing to give, and nobody is so rich he has nothing to receive.
The measure of your success will be the measure of your generosity.
Do not be afraid. Open wide the doors to Christ.
I kiss the soil as if I placed a kiss on the hands of a mother, for the homeland is our earthly mother. I consider it my duty to be with my compatriots in this sublime and difficult moment.
America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.
You, too, be courageous! The world needs convinced and fearless witnesses. It is not enough to discuss, it is necessary to act!
Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.
A nation that destroys its own people is a nation without hope.
Christ remains primary in your life only when he enjoys the first place in your mind and heart. Thus you must continuously unite yourself to him in prayer…. Without prayer there can be no joy, no hope, no peace. For prayer is what keeps us in touch with Christ.
The future starts today, not tomorrow.
Do not be afraid to be saints. Follow Jesus Christ who is the source of freedom and light. Be open to the Lord so that He may lighten all your ways.
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.
