"There are times when the burden of need and our own limitations might tempt us to become discouraged. But precisly then we are helped by the knowledge that, in the end, we are only instruments in the Lord’s hands; and this knowledge frees us from the presumption of thinking that we alone are responsible for building a better world. In all humility we will do what we can, and in all humility we will entrust the rest to the Lord. It is God who governs the world, not we. We offer Him our service only to the extent that we can and for as long as He grants us the strength....the love of Christ urges us on."
* Pope Benedict XVI, On Christian Love


To those we leave at home when we toil in Pearlington:
Thank you for caring for Pearlington through caring for me and what I must do. Thank you for the sacrifices you make, the meals we miss together, the work you do to care for our lives while I'm away. We make our contributions, each in the way we can, and this is yours.
Thank you for sharing me with Pearlington. And when I'm done, I cherish the knowing that I am coming home to you.
