“You have sent me out, just as your Father sent you out. You have sent me into the lives of those around me, into this society and this culture, just as your Father sent you into the world. You want me to be true to your will, to love me neighbor as you have loved me, just as you were true to the Father’s will. You have put your mission into my hands. Thank you, Lord! With you at my side, I have nothing to fear…”
