QUOTATION: Communion of Saints

In the spiritual realm, no one lives for oneself alone. And salutary concern for the salvation of one own’s soul is freed from fear and selfishness only when it becomes concerned for the salvation of others as well. This is the reality of the communion of saints, of the mystery of “vicarious life,” and of prayer as the means of union with Christ and His saints.

--Pope John Paul II
