Climb that Mountain The clock is ticking As each second goes by. I am sitting there Dreaming of being a duck master* Dreaming of being a millionaire Dreaming of meeting the Abominable Snowman. I suddenly wake up and realize: I am nothing if I do nothing! I realize I have to climb, Climb to the top of that mountain The mountain of my dreams! My body will be restless until I do.

That Evening of March 13, 2013 The evening of March 13 Crowds wait patiently in the square of St. Peter’s People gluing their eyes to their television screens Cardinals in a locked chapel, voting in secrecy Catholics anticipating news of a new pope. Suddenly, white smoke arises from the Sistine’s chimney Bells ring to announce the news of a new Pope. Crowds of people cry out with joy A Cardinal in red vestments comes out and says: “Habemus Papam! We Have a New Pope!” The crowd bursts out in exultation “Jorje Mario Bergoglio, takes himself the name Francis!” Later, a white figure came out to the balcony of St. Peter’s saying: “Brothers and sisters, good evening!” Everyone was stunned at how humble the new pontiff was That new Pope did not wear any fancy robes or a shiny gold cross This man was no ordinary man He was the humble and merciful Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina He was going to lead the Church in a new way: A Church of mercy and for the poor The evening of March 13.

Definition of Love I have just been asked “What is love?” My mind goes blank Sitting there staring at a blank paper I picked up a pencil and scratch these words: Love is… …a big bright red heart, an outward sign not boastful, an outward direction, but most importantly… HUMBLE Love is not love When one has not yet learned Humility That is love

Those “Covers” Will be Lifted Your lies, secrets and troubles Your grades, thoughts and worries Your fears, guilt and sadness Those “covers” will be lifted. Never hide your feelings Never hide the truth Never hide your identity Those “covers” will be lifted. Do not delay! Sooner or later Today or tomorrow Those “covers” will be lifted!
