Cotton field in Mississippi (Joann Blomme)

"To hear the call of the human heart in another person means hearing truth. It puts your hand on the doorway to peace, comfort and understanding in someone's life. In the presence of another's truth, one can feel its impact. But then, the choice: to let it draw out the best in you — or harden one's heart into judgment, criticism or ignoring the call for response."

- Sr. Joann Blomme, adapted from "Preaching truth in the Mississippi Delta," published on Global Sisters Report
