Quote of the Day Part Duo

“We Have received the faith to give it to others. We are priests meant to
service others. And we must bring a fruit that will remain. All people want
to leave a mark which lasts. But what remains? Money does not. Building do
not, nor books. After a certain amount of time, whether long or short, all
these things disappear. The only thing which remains forever is the human
soul, the human person created by God for eternity. The fruit which remains
then is that which we have sowed in human souls: love, knowledge, a gesture
capable of touching the heart, words which open the soul to the joy in the
Lord. Let us then go to the Lord and pray to Him, so that He may help us
bear fruit which remains. Only in this way will the earth be changed from a
valley of tears to a garden of God.”
- - Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI)

Duo, by the way, for those that don't know, is the Latin word for Two (I've been trying to learn some Latin lately).
