A sacrifice to be real
must cost, must hurt,
must empty ourselves.
The fruit of silence is prayer,
the fruit of prayer is faith,
The fruit of faith is love,
The fruit of love is service,
The fruit of service is Peace.
It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give, but
how much love is put in the giving.
Not all of us can do great things.
But we can do small things with great love.
