On his feast day, look to this wisdom of the former pontiff to bring perspective to your day.

Although St John Paul II passed away some 13 years ago, he left behind some very sage advice that is as relevant today as the day he shared it. The Polish pope had a lot to say on a whole myriad of issues, so we had plenty to choose from, but we’ve selected a few of our favorites that shed light on the beauty of Christianity in our modern society, and that help bring some perspective to our daily challenges. If you have a personal favorite that you’d like to share, we’d love to read them in the comments section!
