St. John Paul II

“Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son”.

      He makes great videos gears toward teens and young adults. My parish just adopted his series Chosen for Confirmation class.

      Thanks for the kind words and keeping an eye on my blog. I have been so busy lately that I haven’t really had any time to post anything original. The other day I was telling my best friend this quote from JPII and I thought it would make a great post to remind people of the Father love for us independently of our weakness and failures. Truly JPII was a saint and we were blessed to have his witness and love as the Pope.

      Cheers,

      Caleb
