Living as 'children of the light'

 "Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." - Pope Bl JP II 

"Visit the Lord in that 'heart to heart' contact that is Eucharistic Adoration.  Day after day, you will receive new energy to help you to bring comfort to the suffering and peace to the world. Many people are wounded by life: they are excluded from economic progress, and are without a home, a family, a job; there are people who are lost in a world of false illusions, or have abandoned all hope. 
By contemplating the light radiant on the face of the Risen Christ, you will learn to live as 'children of the light and children of the day' (1 Th 5:5), and in this way you will show that 'the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true' (Eph 5:9)." (13) ~ Pope Bl John Paul II ~ WYD, 2002

A wheelchair was made for John Paul II so he could move around freely. The chair was level with the Tabernacle in his chapel. His secretary found the Pope embracing the Tabernacle. He asked the Pope why. The Pope replied: “I just don't know what else I can do to console Him.

Pope Bl John Paul II, pray for us!
