"People say, 'What good can one person do? What is the sense of our small effort?' They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time.

But we can beg for an increase of love in our hearts that will vitalize and transform all our individual actions, and know that God will take them and multiply them, as Jesus multiplied the loaves and the fishes."
