“Let us learn to acknowledge our mistakes and to ask for forgiveness: “Forgive me if today I raised my voice.” “I’m sorry if I passed without greeting you.” “Excuse me if I was late…if this week I was very silent…if I spoke too much without ever listening.” “Excuse me; I forgot.” “I’m sorry I was angry and I took it out on you.”… Don’t let a day end without asking forgiveness, without peace returning to our home, to our family.”

—from Believe in Love: Inspiring Words from Pope Francis

“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.”

— Pope St. John Paul II

“We live in a fallen world. We must therefore work out our destiny under the conditions created by sin. Did we but realize this truth, we would accept each of life’s trying changes in the same spirit in which we accept the penance from the confessor. Were we truly convinced that our hope of pardon, and consequently our salvation, depends upon repentance, we would willingly undergo all the sufferings of life’s warfare.”

— John A. Kane
