Pope Francis: "The Courage to Persevere..."

Let us not give in to pessimism and discouragement;
we have that firm confidence
which the Holy Spirit gives the Church,
with his mighty breath,
the courage to persevere
and to seek new ways to evangelize,
to bring the Gospel to the ends of the Earth.
The Christian truth is appealing and persuasive
because it responds
to the profound needs of human existence,
announcing convincingly
that Christ is the only Savior
of the whole man and of all men.

Pope Francis
