Happy Anniversary Pope Francis...Thank you for your spirit, your hard work, your ministry, your leadership and presence. May God's blessings be upon you today and always!
"In our complex and violent world, it is truly a formidable undertaking to work for peace by living the practice of nonviolence. Equally daunting is the aim of achieving full disarmament 'by reaching people’s very souls', building bridges,fighting fear and pursuing open and sincere dialogue. The practice of dialogue is in fact difficult. We must be prepared forgive and take. We must not assume that the others are wrong. Instead, accepting our differences and remaining true to our positions, we must seek the good of all; and, after having finally found agreement, we must firmly maintain it." (Pope Francis)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P. "Preacher on the Run"
