Choice Excerpts from Malala’s 2014 Noble Peace Prize


“I am also honoured to receive this award together with Kailash Satyarthi, who has been a champion for children’s rights for a long time. Twice as long, in fact, than I have been alive. I am proud that we can work together, we can work together and show the world that an Indian and a Pakistani, they can work together and achieve their goals of children’s rights.

This award is not just for me. It is for those forgotten children who want education. It is for those frightened children who want peace. It is for those voiceless children who want change.

Pope Francis prays for a revival of missionary zeal in the Church


The Holy Bible
Isaiah 56:1,3,6-7
Salvation for Others

56: 1 This is what the Lord says…..

3 Let no foreigner who is bound to the Lord say,
“The Lord will surely exclude me from his people.”….

6 And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord to minister to him,

to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants,

all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant—

7 these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer…..

…for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

The Holy Bible
Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus Has Risen – The Great Commission

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
