(c) Eric Gran 2005 -

We cannot do everything. And there is a sense of liberation in realising that this enables us to do something and to do it very well. It may be incomplete but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest. We may never see the end results but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are the workers not the master builders, we are the ministers not messiahs, we are the prophets of a future not our own.

- Bishop Oscar Romero quoted by Philip Clarke in "A Heart of Compassion"
