“It is Jesus [who] you seek when you dream of happiness; he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.”
Saint John Paul II

Prayer for small groups

Powerful, sovereign Queen, come to our aid. Speak for us to Our Lord Jesus Christ. Who can do it better than you, who conversed so intimately with him here on earth, and now so fully possess him in Heaven? Speak to your Son for us! Amen.

-St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
