"When we are a little sad, when it seems that everything is going wrong, when a friend disappoints us - or rather, when we disappoint ourselves - let us think 'God loves me', 'God never abandons me'... This is why in the heart of a Christian there is always joy, and joy multiplies when shared!"

                    - Pope Francis, December 2016
