"Each of us has busy days and a busy life, but that does not give us permission to disregard the sacredness of another who enters our world of deadlines. … If we continue to meet all the deadlines and miss the persons or experiences in our daily lives, we most certainly will encounter the 'dead-lines' that have no heartbeat or response to the life-giving mystery of God's people in our lives."

- Sr. Barbara Smith, from "Sacred encounters and awe moments," published on Global Sisters Report
