“Everything Christ said and did teaches us the deepest of truths for He is the truth. In carrying His cross to His crucifixion, He is putting His words into action when He taught us to take up our cross (Luke 9:23).

“Mutual responsibility, shared existence, and true communion are the only form in which salvation is given to us. No one is saved alone.” (Father Stephen Freeman)

“In the creation stories in Genesis, God says everything He creates is good multiple times and when He surveys all of creation at the end of the sixth day, He says it is very good.

Completeness comes in loving God and loving others as Christ teaches.” (Sacramental Living Blog)

“You can’t do life alone, and you don’t have to. Life is meant to be a partnership, lived in community with family and friends.” (Stan Toler)
