And without faith it is impossible
to please God,
for whoever would approach Him
must believe that He exists and that
He rewards those who seek Him.
Prayer is like a great love.
When you start dating the silence can be awkward,
but as you grow to know each other
you can sit in silence for hours and
just being with each other is a great comfort.
Hope is the ‘little sister’ of faith and charity.
(Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi)
