"Christ lives, he has overcome death, he has overcome all these powers. We live in this certainty, in this freedom, and in this joy." (Pope Benedict XVI, General Audience, 12 XI 2008)
"Do not accept anything as the truth if it lacks love. And do not accept anything as love which lacks the truth! One without the other becomes a destructive lie." (Blessed John Paul II, Canonisation of Edith Stein, 11 X 1998)

Tempted and tested? 2 remedies - Love and Fear

God bestows two remedies for all the temptations and trials
that we have to endure: Love and Fear.
Love makes us quicken our steps,
while fear will make us look where we are setting our feet
so that we shall not fall.

(St. Teresa of Avila, 16th century)
