“Faith is the light that illuminates your pathway. Without faith, the future looks very frightening. That’s why it’s essential for you to take whatever steps are necessary to keep your mind and heart filled with faith. Please don’t give up hope on yourself or other people. Keep the candle of faith burning within your soul, as that one small inkling of hope can eradicate the darkness of despair. Be the light that eliminates someone else’s gloomy hopelessness as well. For as you make others stronger, it strengthens not only yourself, but the entire world.”   –   Mother Mary
