Happy because you have chosen the best part.
Happy because who and what will separate you from the love of Christ?
Happy because you have destined your life to the sole and only one highest love.
Happy because in the Church you are the most loved children, and share in the Church’s joy and pain.
Happy because nothing of what you do, pray or suffer is lost; nothing is unknown to that Father who sees in secret and who leaves nothing unrewarded.
Happy because like the Madonna, you have heard the Word of God and you have believed in it, you have followed it!
From the Discourses of Blessed Pope Paul VI
