Pope John Paul II: The Courage to Follow Christ

"Being a Christian has never been easy, nor is it easy today.

Following Christ demands the courage of radical choices,
which often means going against the stream.

"We are Christ!", St Augustine exclaimed.

The martyrs and witnesses of faith yesterday and today,
 including many lay faithful, show that,
if necessary, we must not hesitate to give even our lives for Jesus Christ."

~ Pope John Paul II, November 26, 2000 ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests.  Amen.
