Favorite Aspect of CFT
"Connecting and engaging with people who are different from me, and exploring the ways that we are more similar than different. In my role, I get to do that by uniting people around generosity, a topic that deeply resonates with me."
“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy if anything can.”
— Thomas Merton
