Voice of the Day: Joan Chittister

By Administrator 5-01-2007

If I cannot listen to all of life, then any part that I do hear will be only partial or distorted. If I am listening only in chapel, if I am listening only to my peers, if I am listening only to my profession, if I am listening only to my routine, then I have cut out the poor, the children, the needy, the holy where it is calling me to be present.

- Joan Chittister
from Alive Now! July/August 1994
