Some lovely quotes from Blessed John Paul II:
The Church needs resolute, consistent, and faithful witnesses who, in the face of widespread doubts and disbelief on many levels in society today, will show in word and deed their commitment to the ever living Christ.
It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness.
Holiness is not perfection according to human criteria; it 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.
Man's life comes from God; it is his gift, his image and imprint, a sharing in his breath of life. God therefore is the sole Lord of this life: Man cannot do with it as he wills.
