Featured Quote
"What we have been given, we have been given to give back to the world for the good of the many.
Life is a two-way street. We get nothing for free until we give it away.
Then we get back everything we need
and all of it for nothing from everyone else whose own gifts make our lives better."
Joan Chittister, OSB
