A Word From our Holy Father

“…the King whom we follow and who accompanies us is very special: he is a King who loves even to the Cross and who teaches us to serve and to love.  And you are not ashamed of his Cross! On the contrary, you embrace it, because you have understood that it is in giving ourselves, in giving ourselves, in emerging from ourselves that we have true joy.”
