“Life is a military endeavor. Christian life is a battle, a beautiful battle, because when God emerges victorious in every step of our life, this gives us joy, a great happiness: the joy that the Lord is the victor within us, with his free gift of salvation. But we’re all a bit lazy, aren’t we, in this battle and we allow ourselves to get carried away by our passions, by various temptations.That’s because we’re sinners, all of us!  But don’t get discouraged. Have courage and strength because the Lord is with us.”  ~Pope Francis, 10/30/14 Homily

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation."  Isaiah 12:2
