One Body

One Body

The enemy in our battle to overcome
chronic, unjust poverty
is our misguided spirit of individualism…
our snobbery, apathy, prejudice and blind unreason.
Though we are many,
we are one body in the eyes of God,
all animated by one Spirit.
And as members of one body
we each have a responsibility
for one another.

We cannot separate justice and charity…
they must go together, hand-in-hand,
in order to solve the problem created
by chronic poverty.
