This is precisely what struck me in returning to the prayer of Christ: He does not say “May they all be united” but “May they all be one.” (John 17:21).

QUOTATION: Charity

Mother Teresa of Calcutta
In the world today there are those whose struggle is for justice and human rights. We have no time for this because we are in daily and continuous contact with people who are starving for a piece of bread and for some affection. Should I devote myself to the struggle for justice when the most needy people would die right in front of me for lack of a glass of milk?


--Mother Teresa of Calcutta, No Greater Love.
