Life, long or short, is a journey towards Paradise; there is our fatherland, there is our real home; there is our appointment!
Jesus is waiting for us in Paradise! Never forget this supreme and consoling truth.

And what is Holy Communion but an anticipation of Paradise? In fact, in the Eucharist it is Jesus Himself Who is waiting for us and Whom we will meet one day openly in Heaven.
Receive Jesus often in order never to forget Paradise, be always on the march towards the house of the Heavenly Father, to enjoy Paradise a little already!
St. John Paul II, Corpus Christi, June 14, 1979
