Thurgood Marshall

None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps.

We got here because somebody –

a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns –

bent down and helped us pick up our boots.

– Thurgood Marshall, first African American on the United States Supreme Court

We are called by God and sent by the Church to reproduce in ourselves:
Christ healing... Christ consoling... Christ always aware of the needs of others.
