“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.” -St. Pope John Paul II
This is one of my favorite quotes by Saint Pope John Paul II. I remember the first time I read this quote, I got goosebumps, I felt ready to conquer the world.
It’s amazing how these saints lived so close to Jesus and Madonna that the Holy Spirit was with them all the time and speaking through them. You can see this by the way they talked, walked, & even dressed, it was all in modesty. Saints are people like me and you, but they never stopped believing even when life knocked them down.
As Christian Catholics, we have such a great mission to finish. Aren’t we all in love with those action movies where they must finish their mission to win against evil?
Our mission is not a movie nor fiction. It is real and we must keep moving forward. We are warriors and when we wake up we have to make sure to put on the full armor of God before we start our day. We face many temptations in our home, work, and school. If we are not ready everyday, everyday will be hell for us.
For us Christians this world will be the only hell we will know. For non believers this world will be the only heaven they will ever live in. Don’t take your faith for granted warrior. Our mission is the most beautiful adventure that no movie can beat. God will always win despite the chaos around us.
