Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that have received -- only what you have given.

********************** May the words of the holy Gospel wash away our sins and bring us to everlasting life.
********************** "The Gospel is capable of changing people! It transforms evil inclinations into good proposals. It frees those who are enslaved by sin, the spirit of vanity, of attachment to money, of pride, of sensuality… Read the Word of God daily and meditate upon its teachings and allow yourselves to be nurtured every day by this infinite source of salvation."(Pope Francis)

August is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Honouring Mary's Immaculate Heart is another way of honouring Mary as Mother of God, recognising her extraordinary holiness and her immense love for Jesus. This devotion aims to unite mankind to God through Mary's heart, through consecration and reparation, that, true peace and justice among nations may be re-established. "We entrust, O Mary, and con- secrate the whole world to your Immaculate Heart!"
