Our limited acts of love reveal to us [God's] unlimited love. Our small gestures of care reveal His boundless care. Our fearful and hesitant words reveal His fearless and guiding Word. It is indeed through our broken, vulnerable, mortal ways of being that the healing power of the eternal God becomes visible to us. Therefore, we are called each day to present to our Lord the whole of our lives.
-- Henri Nouwen in A Cry for Mercy
