Humanity as a whole has already gone through unimaginable suffering, mostly self-inflicted, the culmination of which was the 20th century with its unspeakable horrors. This collective suffering has brought upon a readiness in many human beings for the evolutionary leap that is spiritual awakening.
The greatest achievement of humanity is not its works of art, science, or technology, but the recognition of its own dysfunction.
Social justice means loving people so much that I work to change structures that violate their dignity.
Peter Henriot S.J.
“…be not discouraged, but have recourse to Mary in all you necessities. Call her to your assistance, for such is the divine Will that she should help in every kind of necessity.”
– Saint Basil the Great
“Let us entrust to her intercession the daily prayer for peace, especially in places where the senseless logic of violence is most ferocious; so that all people may be convinced that in this world we must help each other, as brothers and sisters, to build the civilization of love.”
– Pope Benedict XVI
