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.

             

               17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” 

               19 honor your father and mother,’[a] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

Asunción, Paraguay__18 de mayo de 1988 | Do not seek happiness in pleasure, possession of material goods, or pursuing power.

True happiness is not a product of what we have but reflects who we are. It is a state of being, not a possession.

Happiness, the truest form of joy, resides in the heart, in love, and in the act of selflessly surrendering for the well-being of others without any expectation of return.
