Courageously and generously living...

 "Nothing whatever pertaining to godliness and real holiness can be
accomplished without grace."- St Augustine

“Courageously follow the path of personal holiness and diligently nourish yourselves with the word of God and the Eucharist.  The holier you are, the more you can contribute to building up the Church and society. …

Be generous in answering Jesus’ call inviting you to put out into the deep and become His witnesses, discovering the trust He puts in you to devise a future together with Him.  Above all, to fulfill this mission the Church is entrusting to you requires that you cultivate a genuine life of prayer nourished by the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Confession." -St John Paul II


“My daughter, just as you prepare in My presence,
so also you make your confession before Me.  The person of the priest is,
for Me, only a screen.  Never analyse what sort of a priest it is
that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me,
and I will fill it with My light.” (1725)  - St Faustina, Divine Mercy in My Soul
