"Yet we are courageous, and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord."-2Corinthians 5:8
"Therefore, we are not discouraged; rather, although our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day... as we look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal."-2 Corinthians 4:16,18
"Life, long or short, is a journey towards Paradise; There is our fatherland, there is our real home; there is our appointment! Jesus is waiting for us in Paradise!
Never forget this supreme and consoling truth."
- Pope John Paul II (June, 14, 1979)
