“We accomplish in our lifetime only a fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work. Nothing we do is complete, which is another way of saying that the Kingdom always lies beyond us … We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between “master” builder and the worker. We are the workers, not the master builder, the ministers, not the Messiah. We are prophets of a future that is not our own.” – Archbishop Oscar Romero
