"May God bless you with enough foolishness... to believe that you can make a difference in the world, so that you can do what others claim cannnot be done."

(from a Franciscan blessing. Published in the May/June issue of Baptist Peacemaker)

"Merely to resist evil with evil by hating those who hate us and seeking to destroy them, is actually no resistance at all. It is active and purposeful collaboration in evil that brings the Christian into direct and and intimate contact with the same source of evil and hatred which inspires the acts of the enemy. It leads in practice to a denial of Christ and to the service of hatred rather than love." Thomas Merton in Passion for Peace
