A thought for today

When working on matters of peace and justice, it is easy to become discouraged, to lose hope. However, it is important to remember that our prayers, our actions, our advocacy can have an impact beyond our small field of vision. Consider this:

"People say, what is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There is too much work to do," Servant of God Dorothy Day (1897-1980).
