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
