Today's Thought

There is a moment in every man’s life when he has to make ready for a departure, and at last the moment comes for him to leave his earthly home, and to give an account of his labor.

May every one of us then be able to say:

I have not darkened immortal souls with suspicion or fear, I have been frank, loyal and trustful; I have looked those who did not share my ideals straight in the eyes and treated them with brotherly affection, in order not to impede the carrying out of God’s great purpose, in his good time- a purpose which must bring about the fulfillment of the divine teaching and command of Jesus, “that we may all be one.”

Pope John XXIII
