Love sustains the world

“Faith in God opens man up to the horizon of a certain hope,” on which we can rely, so as to “abandon ourselves with trust into the hands of the Love that sustains the world.”

--Pope Benedict XVI, in a recent letter to the president of the Italian bishops' conference Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco

Thank you, Padre Steve for the original post:

Our Lady of Guadalupe

"Am I not here who am your Mother?
Are you not under my shadow and protection?
Am I not the fountain of your joy?
Are you not in the fold of my mantle, in the cradle of my arms?"

--words of Our Lady to Saint Juan Diego

Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas, pray for us.
