10 JPII Quotes to Inspire

"Take a look at the list of the most popular saints in the Catholic Church. What do you see? We see saints like St. John Bosco and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who tirelessly dedicated their lives to Catholic education. We notice saints like St. Francis who sacrificed their entire livelihoods to take on a life of poverty. And then we recognize saints like St. Cecilia and St. Maximilian Kolbe, who sacrificed their entire lives in honor of love and virtue.

Our most beloved saints are saints who exemplified heroism and hope and courage and trust. We honor them because of these virtues and heroic deeds, but we don’t remember them because all of their accomplishments were their own doing; rather, we honor them for their intense love of the Lord. An intense love that was lived out in miraculous ways."
