“Jesus takes our nothingness and dances it to greatness.”

Fr. Ryan Mann, Cleveland Diocese

“You are not a puzzle to figure out or a problem to solve, but an epiphany to behold and a mystery to contemplate.”

Ryan Mann, Catholic Seminarian (via firerainingdown)

"A few weeks before my trip to the United States someone came to our house by night and said, "There is a Hindu family with eight children, and they have gone several days without eating."
I took a bit of rice and went immediately to their assistance. The mother took the rice from my hands, distributed it into two equal servings, and went out immediately.
When she came back I asked, “Where have you been? What have you been doing?”
"They are hungry too," she answered.
Right next to them lived a Muslim family with the same number of children. The Hindu mother knew they had been out of food for several days. She did what Jesus does: she broke the bread. She broke her love and shared it with her neighbors. […]
What impressed me most in that instance was that the woman knew. Do we know our poor people? Do we know the poor in our house, our family?”
—Mother Teresa, Heart of Joy

"There’s nothing more calming in difficult moments that knowing there’s someone fighting with you."
~Mother Teresa

“To consecrated women and men: live to the full your dedication to God, so that this world may never be without a ray of divine beauty to lighten the path of human existence. You know the One in whom you have put your trust (2 Tim 1:12): give him everything! Young people will not be deceived: when they come to you, they want to see what they do not see elsewhere.”

Blessed John Paul II (via imaginesisters)

“Father, by your plan man and woman are united,
and married life has been established
as the one blessing that was not forfeited by original sin or washed away by the flood.”
