One of our sisters is currently going into Detroit one day a week to work with the homeless. As you can imagine, she can easily experience being overwhelmed by the greatness of the needs she encounters. Any of us can have that same experience: e.g. what difference are we making in the fight against abortion or trying to amend the pending health care package so it will exclude provisions for assisted suicide . . . or “just” trying to instill the truth in a teenager’s mind.
A saying from Mother Teresa comes to mind: “The whole work is only a drop in the ocean. But if we don’t put the drop in, the ocean would be one drop less.”
Don’t cease to put your drops in, drop by drop. Each one counts.
