Life is the time that is granted to us to express concretely
the potential riches which each of us bears and to make our contribution to the common progress of mankind. Life is the time that is given to us to embody in ourselves and in history
the values of love, goodness, joy, justice, and peace,
to which the human heart aspires.
--Blessed John Paul II, address, Rome, 1981
