QUOTATION: Our Self-Worth

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio-- Pope Francis
We sometimes value ourselves mistakenly: at first, we think we're the best in the world; later, we switch to despising ourselves, to feeling that we can't succeed at anything.  We swing from one extreme to another.  The Blood of Christ gives us true self-esteem-- we're worth a lot in Jesus' eyes!  Not because we are better or worse than other people, but because we have been and remain very much beloved.

--Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio), Homily on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, 2011
