John Paul the Great on Faith, Hope, and Love #1

Faith is always demanding, because faith leads us beyond ourselves. It leads us directly to God. Faith also imparts a vision of life's purpose and stimulates us to action. ... Christ has commanded us to let the light of the Gospel shine forth in our service to society. How can we profess faith in God's word, and the refuse to let it inspire and direct our thinking, our activity, our decisions, and our responsibilities toward one another?
Homily in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, 1995
