Each week we let Saint Pope John Paul II share meaningful signposts to spark socio-economic resolves through justice and righteousness combined with mercy and compassion; in short, love

One becomes Christian throughout one’s life. I say that from my own experience. It is not a question of age but a question of the heart. It is a matter of faith, hope, and love. It is about ‘being born again’ (John 3: 7), from his initiative, from his love, from the love of God, who, like fire, burns the old man in us … 

We must, with this labor, this cooperation with Jesus, begin as soon as possible.
