"The mission of Stand Tall Today is important in our often demoralized world. I hope it can serve to remind people that every day is a gift and an opportunity to grow in gospel virtue in the Light of Jesus Christ. As I pray the luminous mysteries I am often inspired to realize that the incarnation of Jesus Christ has given every human life the potential of being luminous, full of light and grace. May the efforts of Stand Tall Today help many to embrace the Light of Christ which has overcome the darkness of our world."
