bare necessities

(soggy bird boy)

With good reason we cannot be indifferent to anyone who lacks the necessities of life. As our knowledge and love of God grows, so does our concern to respond as fully as we can to Jesus in what Mother Teresa of Calcutta calls “his most distressing disguise.”

~ Mary Evelyn Jegen, SND ~

from her book,
How You Can Be a Peacemaker


There but for the grace of God go I.

...the quote, not the boat. The boat? I think I would like that.
