. . . unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.


“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound
to the starless midnight of racism and war
that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood
can never become a reality…
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love
will have the final word.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Each one of us has lived through . . .


“Each one of us has lived through some devastation,
some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm,
when we look at each other we must say, I understand.
I understand how you feel because I have been there myself.
We must support each other and empathize with each other
because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.”

~ Maya Angelou

travel through this life with conviction,
spread joy to others,
embrace changes as they happen,
then you will find balance in your life.”

If you must look back . . .


“If you must look back, do so forgivingly.
If you must look forward, do so prayerfully.
However, the wisest thing you can do is
be present in the present… gratefully.”

. . . and Saint Patrick spoke


“If I have any worth,
it is to live my life for God
so as to teach these peoples;
even though some of them
still look down on me.”

~ Saint Patrick


“Through the strength of heaven
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire.
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.”

~Saint Patrick
