Catholic News & Events
For Reflection

True joy does not come from things or from possessing, no! It is born from the encounter, from the relationship with others, it is born from feeling accepted, understood and loved, and from accepting, from understanding and from loving; and this is not because of a passing fancy but because the other is a person. Joy is born from the gratuitousness of an encounter! It is hearing someone say, but not necessarily with words:  “You are important to me”. This is beautiful.... And it is these very words that God makes us understand. In calling you God says to you:  “You are important to me, I love you, I am counting on you”       

 -Pope Francis
