"But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it. See I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.… Deut 30:14-16
"Illuminated by the light of the Gospel
and upheld by the grace of the sacraments,
especially the Eucharist,
we can orient our choices towards the good
and pass, with courage and hope,
moments of darkness and more tortuous paths."
