Peace in the Midst of Chaos

It's been a busy day of cleaning up my desk space. Even in the chaos, the Lord shines a light. Found a quote from JPII that stirred my soul. I hope that it does the same for you.

"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 mask 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 mediocracy, the courage to commit yoursleves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal."- Pope John Paul II

Don't subdue the inner voice that pushes you to greatness. It might be difficult to follow but it is God Himself that calls. Your courage and faith will be rewarded. Stand up for what is right and holy! Pray for the unborn and the couples entrusted with the decision.

May the peace of His Sacred Heart shine on us.

God Bless.
