Tired of all the bad news

While we can't deny the difficulites for so many people at home and overseas, it's important to take account of the positives, and to spread the Good News. I don't know who said this but; "No-one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side." Blessings..

A word from John Paul II...


Love

‎”Love explained everything to me. Love solved everything for me. That is why I admire love wherever it is found. If loves is as great as it is simple, if the simplest longing can be found in nostalgia, then I can understand why God wants to be greeted by simple people; by those whose hearts are pure and find no words to express their love. God came this far and He stopped a short step away from nothingness, very close to our eyes. Perhaps life is a wave of astonishment, a wave of height and depth: Don’t ever be afraid”

Taken from one of Karol Wojtyla’s poems Song of the Hidden God.
It was used as one of the last lines in the film ‘Karol; The Man who became Pope’ about the life of Pope John Paul II
