The Evangelical Pope | Surrender for the Good of Others

Each week we let Saint Pope John Paul II share meaningful signposts to spark socio-economic resolves through justice and righteousness combined with mercy and compassion; in short, love.

 

 

               16 Just then, a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

 

               __ Matthew 19:16

 
Asunción, Paraguay - 18 May 1988 | Do not seek happiness in pleasure, possession of material goods, or pursuing power. One is happy because of what one is and not based on what one has. Happiness lies in the heart and in love, in surrendering for the good of others, without wanting to get anything in return.
