A psalm of mercy
Have mercy on me, God, have mercy,
   for in you I take refuge.
In the shadow of your wings I take refuge,
   till harm pass by.
I call to God the Most High,
   to God, my benefactor.
May he send from heaven and save me;
   may he make those a reproach who 
   trample upon  me;
   may God send his mercy and his faithfulness.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
   above all the earth be your glory!
For your mercy towers to the heavens,
   and your faithfulness to the skies.
                             --Psalm 57

From Mother Teresa
"Poverty doesn't only consist of being hungry for bread ... We need to love and to be somebody for someone else."
