"You have immense potential to love, to care, to create, to grow, to sacrifice, if you believe in yourself. It doesn't matter your age, or your color, or whether your parents loved you or not. Let that go, it belongs to the past; you belong to the now. It doesn't matter what you've been, the wrong you've done, the mistakes you made, the people you've hurt. You are forgiven. You are accepted. You're OK. Give yourself a new birth. Begin now. Today." ~author unknown
Fr. Fallon quoted this in a sermon a few weeks ago. I felt it needed to be shared.
