Lessons from St. John Paul II: A Saint Among Us
It's not often we live in the era of a saint, but with St. John Paul II, many of us did. His legacy isn't just etched in the hearts of millions.
And, oh, what lessons he has for us Catholic Daughters!
From surviving assassination attempts to enduring Parkinson's in his later years, his perseverance was legendary. Being a Catholic Daughter often requires a similar kind of resilience, doesn't it? His life reminds us that with faith, we can persevere through our challenges.
Love and Family
St. John Paul II had a deep respect for women and their indispensable role in families. His devotion to Mother Mary and his document, Mulieris Dignitatem (The Dignity of Woman), is a testament to this. As daughters caring for our aging parents, we're living out this special vocation of love every day.
The Joy Factor
Ever noticed that infectious smile of his? Even amidst challenges, St. John Paul II radiated joy. And that's a big mood for us. No matter how tough our Catholic Daughter days get, there's always room for a little joy, right?
This week, take a moment to read a quote or teaching by St. John Paul II. See if it resonates with your Catholic Daughter journey. One of my go-to's is - "Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."
Sounds like a call to embrace our Catholic Daughter role with courage and love!
