#Quote
1Look at the passion for life that he [Jesus] lived as portrayed in the Stations of the Cross - that fight that he had in him, as well as the love he shared with others. There's no difference.
2Success in football doesn't matter. Success in anything doesn't matter. As Mother Teresa said, God calls us not to be successful but to be faithful. My prayer is that I would glorify God no matter what, and not have success be the definition of it.
