"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."
-- Abbé Monchanin

Scripture Passage for the Day

Is not this my chosen fast,
the Lord, the Eternal, asks,
to loosen all that fetters men unfairly,
and to relax its grip,
to free poor debtors from their bonds,
and break what binds them?
It is to share your food with hungry men,
and take the homeless to your home,
to clothe the naked when you see them,
and never turn from any fellow-creature.

Is 58:6-7 Moffatt Translation
