Bound together by Faith

We have found the Messiah

"In the inexpressible joy of this eternal vision, human nature will possess what eye has not seen or ear heard, what man's heart has never conceived." -- Pope St. Leo the Great

In God You Are Never Alone

"Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence". -- Pope John Paul II

The Blessed Mother

“May the Mother of Jesus and our Mother, always smile on your spirit, obtaining for it, from her Most Holy Son, every heavenly blessing.” -- Saint Padre Pio
