With all my soul I thank the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, who have raised me up to the honour and blessing of being allowed to drink from a bitter chalice, firm in the hope that this will help towards my salvation.
-St. Daniel Comboni

********************** May the words of the holy Gospel wash away our sins and bring us to everlasting life.
********************** "The Gospel is capable of changing people! It transforms evil inclinations into good proposals. It frees those who are enslaved by sin, the spirit of vanity, of attachment to money, of pride, of sensuality… Read the Word of God daily and meditate upon its teachings and allow yourselves to be nurtured every day by this infinite source of salvation."(Pope Francis)
