You know movies wouldn’t be the same without the wise, old wizard/mentor/ Yoda/whatever. Here are some of our favorite faith-inspiring quotes from these guys.

Gandalf in The Fellowship of the Ring

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us

Have you ever found yourself asking, “Why is this happening to me?” Well, we can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond and whether or not we choose to have faith.

Professor Dumbledore in The Prisoner of Azkaban

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light

He’s right, faith is a choice that can lead us to great happiness. We just need to choose to believe. (You know, “turn on the light”… see what we did there?)

Obi Wan Kenobi in A New Hope

Wisdom of the aged - Obi Wan Kenobi

Cue the 90’s song, “I Get Knocked Down, But I Get Up Again.” Not only does having faith help us come back from disappointments or mistakes, we become that much stronger and can overcome whatever life brings us next.

Abbe Faria (aka Priest) in The Count of Monte Cristo

God believes in you

We are never alone.
