“You must not abandon the ship in a storm because you cannot control the winds… What you cannot turn to good, you must at least make as little bad as you can.”

— St. Thomas More

“We must be present with and to the Lord, in silence as Mary practiced silence. We begin with silence of the will, that is, willing nothing but the will of God. Begin here and the rest will come. The Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will experience silence. Guard and protect it with love and you will become a garden enclosed. Silence is the soil for the seed of the word.”

— Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“Your voice has the power to transform individuals and communities: your family, your friends, the multitude, and the one person on your doorstep. And if you will just risk starting with a whisper, oh, what could happen!”
