Protest alone, which often leads to violence, is not sufficient. Often it is fruitless. Thus we must demonstrate that a new way exists and show the world a new reality, the reality of God�fs righteousness and holiness, which is opposed to the spirit of this world. We must show with our lives that men and women can live lives of purity, peace, unity, and love wherever they dedicate their energies to working for the common good; and not only by creating spiritual community, but by building up a practical life of sharing. Above all, we must witness to the power of love. Each of us can give our lives to others in the service of love.
