Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …

But let it not be forgotten that responsibility is individual. We may be in a minority of good, which cannot effect the salvation of our people. But we must not cease to work because we know that our work is hopeless to effect all that is desired. We have a duty to fulfil to ourselves, and to our God; we have our own destinies absolutely in our own control; we are bound, at the risk of an awful peril, to save our own bark from foundering, and in doing so, we may be very sure that we shall do much for others, though we may not accomplish all that we desire.
