“I believe in God, patient, welcoming, good like a summer’s night. I believe in Mary, my mother, who loves me and who will never leave me on my own.”

-from Pope Francis Takes the Bus and Other Unexpected Stories


“If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively what takes place in this Sacrament of the Eucharist, I am sure that the thought of Christ’s love for us would transform the coldness of our hearts into a fire of love and gratitude.”

— St. Angela of Foligno
