"Things are never quite as hopeless as they appear to us in our moments of crisis. Unexpectedly a good Bishop appears or someone open-minded is on the scene when needed and things just clear up, at least to some extent. Or you get support. If you have been patient, and stuck to your principles without making a federal case out of them, your turn will come."

( THOMAS MERTON WITNESS TO FREEDOM Letters in Times of Crisis, page 333. Merton wrote this on May 20, 1967, to a Priest. )

How do I respond to things when a crisis is before me? (Via Wayne Burns)
