Thought For The Month

Stay With Us

Photo of an orange and yellow sunset

the day is already waning,
stay with us.
Stay to illuminate our doubts
and our fears.
Stay so that we may fortify
our light with yours.
Stay to help us be
Strong and generous.
Stay so that in a world
that has little faith and hope
we may be able to encourage
one another
and sow faith and hope.
so that we, too, may learn from you
to be the light for other young people
and for the world.

– John Paul II, April 11, 1984
