Words of Encouragement

February 16, 2011 Journal Tweet

Dorothy Day’s words have been such an encouragement to us. We share them with you in the hope that you might find in them the same.

“One of the greatest evils of the day is the sense of futility.  Young people say, 'What can one person do? What is the sense of our small effort?' They cannot see that we can only lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time; we can be responsible only for the one action of the present moment.  But we can beg for an increase of love in our hearts that will vitalize and transform these actions, and know that God will take them and multiply them, as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes.”
