Inspirational Quote: Pope Francis (I love him, remember?)

I have a good childhood friend who I don’t see very much (maybe even less than once a year), but who sends me a gift every Christmas without fail. Even though we don’t even talk often, she has a knack for sending me really meaningful gifts that touch my heart and remind me that I am loved, even from afar. This year is no different. She sent me a mug and prayer card commemorating Pope Francis’ visit to NY, a Rosary ring, and a bottle of Holy Water blessed by Cardinal Dolan (apparently the Holy Water blessed by Pope Francis sold out in a day). On the back of the mug is this quote:

“The family which experiences the joy of faith communicates it naturally. That family is the salt of the earth and the light of the world; it is the leaven of society.”

– Pope Francis, October 27th, 2013

It is a beautiful quote that conveys a message I pray my family can live out.

Thank you, Pope Francis, for your words. And thank you, Katie, for your friendship and your gifts.
