QUOTATION: Faith and Human Equality

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
In vain will the world seek for equality until it has seen men through the eyes of faith.  Faith teaches that all men, however poor, or ignorant, or crippled, however maimed, ugly, or degraded they may be, all bear within themselves the image of God, and have been bought by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. As this truth is forgotten, men are valued only because of what they can do, not because of what they are.

--Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Preface to Religion
