"Grief . . . Never Ends . . .

"Grief . . . Never ends . . . But it changes.

It is a passage, not a place to stay.

Grief is not a sign of weakness,  nor a lack of faith . . .

It is the price of LOVE.

My dear young friends, I want to invite you to “dare to love.” 

Do not desire anything less for your life than a love that is strong and beautiful and that is capable of making the whole of your existence a joyful undertaking of giving yourselves as a gift to God and your brothers and sisters, in imitation of the Onewho vanquished hatred and death forever through love.

Love is the only force capable of changing the heart of the 
human person and of all humanity, by making fruitful the relations between men and women, between rich and poor, between cultures and civilizations.

Benedict XVI, Message for the 22nd World Youth Day, January 2007
