"Do not worry about anything.  Do the little that you can.  You can be sure that you will make mistakes again, but you should never cease from being happy and peaceful.  You will see that by falling into mistakes and rising again, we shall go to Heaven."

Vatican:  Biography of St Maddalena

The great Easter truth is not that we are to love newly after death,

but that we are to be new here and now

by the power of the resurrection.

Many things are possible for the person who has hope.  Even more is possible for the person who has Faith.  And still more is possible for the person who knows how to love.

But everything is possible for the person who practices all three virtues.
