17 December

index“God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us… Our species will end but the light of God will not end and at that point it will invade all souls and it will all be in everyone.”

Pope Francis, born 17 December 1936, Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Aquarius, Ascendant in Cancer
