"Taking this all in, I realized the only thing truly standing between my neighbor and me was the border of my own being. And yet, on the margins, that being is exactly what unites us. It is our brokenness, our blessed and broken being that draws us together in communion and community." 

- St. Joseph Sr. Colleen Gibson, from From the pews in the back, published on Global Sisters Report
