“Father, I have come to the understanding that Jesus asks very little from us, only that we accept him as our friend and love him and care for one another. How simple! And yet how difficult! Please give me grace not to disappoint him, who has given his all for me. I ask this in Jesus’s name, Amen.”

-from Stories of Jesus


“The poor have much to teach you. You have much to learn from them.”
