 Quite often we struggle to hear the voice of God, yet Saint Ignatius say we can find it within our very hearts.
The deep longings the we find within ourselves quite often point the way to where God is waiting to meet us.

“Dear Young people, please, be don’t be observers of life, but get involved. Jesus did not remain an observer, but he immersed himself. Don’t be observers, but immerse yourself in the reality of life, as Jesus did.”

Pope Francis, July 27, 2013 – Youth Prayer Vigil at Rio de Janeiro

“The meaning of life is found in giving and receiving love”
.Life is a journey of constantly trying to find our way home, to our spiritual life, where our God talks to us and where our conscience reveals the authentic and true character of “who I am”

Saint John Paul II
