"I leave you now with this prayer: that the Lord Jesus will reveal Himself to each one of you, that He will give you the strength to go out and profess that you are Christian, that He will show you that He alone can fill your hearts.
Accept His freedom and embrace His truth, and be messengers of the certainty that you have been truly liberated through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
This will be the new experience, the powerful experience that will generate, through you, a more just society and a better world.
God bless you and may the joy of Jesus be always with you!"
–Saint John Paul II
"A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who … raise their
mind with humble confidence to God."
