“To be blessed means to be happy. In an age when we are constantly being enticed by vain and empty illusions of happiness, we risk settling for less and ‘thinking small’ when it comes to the meaning of life. Think big instead. Open your hearts.”

— Pope Francis, in his message for World Youth Day 2014, which will be celebrated on a local level around the world, including on Palm Sunday at the Vatican

HockeyNun“[Hockey] was just sacred in my home. When I turn on a hockey game and I hear that sound of the ice . . . it’s transcendent. I always say that hockey is not a sport, it is an art form. It is like a chess game at lightning speed.”

— Sister Helena Burns, a member of the Daughters of St. Paul and Olympic hockey fan living in Toronto
