The future is in your hearts and in your hands. God is entrusting to you the task of working with him in the building of the civilization of love. — Pope John Paul II

FAST from thinking its someone else’s job to make the world a better place.

GIVE the gift of inspiration to a friend by telling her/him about a time when you’ve experienced God’s love.
