"My overachieving messiah complex will sometimes guilt me into believing it is my responsibility to save the world. It is not. That belongs to a God who is infinite and incomprehensible love."

—St. Joseph Sr. Christine Schenk, in "My Christian manifesto for surviving dark times," published by National Catholic Reporter
