We Must 'Be' Before We 'Do'

"Help us, Jesus, to understand that in order to do in your Church. . . we must first learn to be, that is, to stay with you in adoration, in your sweet company. Authentic, effective and true apostolic action can come only from intimate communion with you."
- Pope John Paul II (Message to the Young People of Rome, 17.03.2005)
