"Fr Junipero Serra had a motto which inspired his life and work...Siempre adelante! Keep moving forward! For him, this was the way to continue experiencing the joy of the Gospel, to keep his heart from growing numb, from being anesthetized. He kept moving forward, because the Lord was waiting. He kept going, because his brothers and sisters were waiting. He kept going forward to the end of his life. Today, like him, may we be able to say: Forward! Let's keep moving forward." (Pope Francis) What an attitude to have! It is the attitude of all successful people. Life is too short not to move forward, especially in our spiritual life. Moving forward reflects St. Augustine's famous saying: "Our hearts are restless, until they rest in you, my God." This was what motivated St. Paul as he kept his eyes on the prize, namely life with God eternally. Siempre adelante!
