"I pray that man will soon realize that we are all of one soul..."
- Bob Dylan at the Sunrise Ceremony led by Cherokee Medicine Man, Rolling Thunder (1975)
"At times, it seems that everything comes up against a stone: the beauty of creation against the tragedy of sin; liberation from slavery against infidelity to the covenant; the promises of the prophets against the listless indifference of the people. So too, in the history of the Church and in our own personal history. It seems that the steps we take never take us to the goal. We can be tempted to think that dashed hope is the bleak law of life... Do not bury hope!"
- Pope Francis, Easter Vigil, (April 20, 2019)
