I Ask

You must be strong, dear brothers and sisters. You must be strong with the strength that comes from faith. So, as I depart, I ask you to accept once again your spiritual heritage…with faith, hope, and love….
I ask that you never despair, never grow weary, never become discouraged; that the roots from which we grow are never severed; that you keep your faith despite your weaknesses, that you always seek strength in Him; that you never lose that freedom of spirit for which He has liberated man; that you never spurn that love…expressed by the Cross, without which human life has no roots and no meaning.
I ask this of you.

Pope John Paul II
