Weekly Reflection

  • World Water Day – March 22    

    Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.  (W.H. Auden)

  • The globalization of indifference, which today burdens the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters, requires all of us to forge a new worldwide solidarity and fraternity capable of giving them new hope and helping them to advance with courage amid the problems of our time and the new horizons which they disclose and which God places in our hands.  (Pope Francis)

  • International Women’s Day – March 8

    I alone cannot change the world but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.   (St. Teresa of Calcutta)

  • May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.  (Nelson Mandela)

  • World Day of Social Justice

    If you want peace, work for justice.  (Pope Paul VI)

  • Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak.  Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.  (Winston Churchill)

  • International Day of Prayer for Human Trafficking Victims – February 8

    People were created to be loved.  Things were created to be used.  The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used.  (John Green)

  • When victims of violence are able to resist the temptation to retaliate, they become the most credible promoters of nonviolent peacemaking.  May nonviolence become the hallmark of our decisions, our relationships and our actions.   (Pope Francis)

  • Human persons are willed by God; they are imprinted with God’s image. Their dignity does not come from the work they do, but from the persons they are. (Pope John Paul II)

  • I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.  (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
