Planting the Seeds
From the late Bishop Oscar Romero:
We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise…
We cannot do everything,
and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something,
and to do it very well…
We may never see the end results,
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders;
ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.
