October 22nd is the Feast Day of Pope Saint John Paul II.  He was the Pope from 1978 until 2005 and was the first Pope in several hundred years not to be an Italian.  Here are some quotes from him:

“Genuine love … is demanding. But its beauty lies precisely in the demands it makes. Only those able to make demands on themselves in the name of love can then demand love from others.”

“The future is in your hearts and in your hands. God is entrusting to you the task, at once difficult and uplifting, of working with Him in the building of the civilization of love.”
