Dance as though no one is watching you,
Love as though you have never been hurt before,
Sing as though no one can hear you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.
Here cometh one mightier than I after me,
the latchet of whose shoes
I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
I indeed have baptized you with water;
he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
Mark 1:7-8 about John The Baptist
Give us, O God, the vision which can see Your love in the world in spite of human failure.
Give us the faith to trust Your goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness.
Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts.
And show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming of the day of universal peace.
Frank Borman Apollo 8 space mission, 1968
