Tomas Halik: Faith

“Let it be said over and over again; faith is not a question of problems but of mystery.

…We must never abandon the path of seeking and asking. A problem can be solved once forever. A Mystery—unlike problems—cannot be overcome. A Mystery invites us to try and understand it again, to go deeper and deeper.”

~Tomas Halik.

Jazz Dela Salde: My wish for you

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, …courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
