- Difficult moments become the path to forge stronger relationships with family, communities, and with Christ.
- Men and women in science cultivate and apply God’s gift of creation for the treatment and cure of diseases, setting free the oppressed.
- Christ sets one free, helps one endure, and allows suffering for the sake of a greater joy yet to come.
