Writer's Wednesday - Pope John Paul II

Do not fear to take Mary as your mother on the journey of life!  May Mary be a model for your of how to follow Jesus.  Do not be afraid of confiding in her, of entrusting to her maternal hands every problem, every anxiety, every expectation, and every project.  Above all, trust her with the project that concerns your whole life:  your vocation, in the sincere gift of what you are, for your own self-fulfillment.

-----Pope John Paul II, John Paul II, A Marian Treasury.
