I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Give and it will be given to you (Luke 6:38).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

Would we simply forgo helping those who are in need because we are afraid that we might offend someone who is very influential?
