All that the friends of Christ did for him in his lifetime, we can do . . . We do it by seeing Christ and serving Christ in friends and strangers, in everyone we come in contact with . . . He said that a glass of water given to a beggar was given to him. He made heaven hinge on the way we act toward him in his disguise of commonplace, frail, ordinary humanity . . . And to those who say, aghast, that they never had a chance to do such a thing, that they lived two thousand years too late, he will say again what they had a chance of knowing all their lives, that if these things were done for the very least of his brethren, they were done to him.
– Dorothy Day
