Pray For Us
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said: "The greatest poverty of mankind is that of not knowing Christ...... "People are hungry for God. People need love. Are we aware of this? Do we
know this? Do we see it? Do we have eyes to see it? Often our gaze wanders without settling upon anyone ... As if we are here for nothing more than to pass through this world. We should open our
eyes, open our eyes and see."
AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
"The Lord has the right to be glorified by us at every moment ... So if we waste time we are robbing God of his glory."
- Saint Josemaria Escriva
Keep your eyes on Jesus!
