2018: The Year of the Heart

A Message from Ilia Delio

I dedicate 2018 to the “Year of the Heart,” that place deep within each of us where the pure glory of God dwells. If we can slow down and enter into this place of mystery, we may come to know the immense power of divine love within us; a power that defies opposition, domination, control and manipulation; a power that rises up in the face of defeat and radiates hope when all seems lost; a power that says “do not fear, I am with you,”; a power that can never be lost, for it is the power of every single person-no matter race, religion or gender. It is the power of our cosmic birth and it will be the power of our future, for Love alone will prevail.

That means that the environment here, the infrastructure, the educational resources, the neighborhoods, and inevitably the experience of the youth is one of fracture at all kinds of intersections.
