Quote of the Day (Tim Shriver, on Catholic Tradition and the Urge to Help)

“What our Catholic tradition has done well is make you not just ought to help, but want to help—hunger for it. Be hungry for justice, be hungry for healing, be hungry for connection, be hungry for leveling the playing field. That’s more than just a moral imperative. It’s believing that your best self will always be in solidarity with those who are having a hard time.”— Tim Shriver, Chairman of the Special Olympics, quoted in Dotson Rader, “Growing Good Citizens,” Parade Magazine, March 29, 2015
