Hey! Thanks for checking us out! By the way, did you know that you matter?
Regardless of where life has you right now or how you feel about yourself, you are made in the image of God. Not only does this mean you have intrinsic worth—independent of what you’ve done or been through—it also means you were created for love.
Maybe you identify with the happy people in the pictures. Maybe you don’t.
But since you are made in the image of the God who himself is “an eternal exchange of love” (CCC 221), you too are destined to receive and express divine love.
Our bodies reveal the profound truth that, regardless of our particular state in life, every human person is a gift. And we only will find ourselves by making a sincere gift of self (Matthew 16:25; Gaudium et Spes 22).
