Grant, O God, thy protection,
and in protection, strength,
and in strength, understanding,
and in understanding, knowledge,
and in knowledge, the knowledge of justice,
and in the knowledge of justice, the love of it,
and in that love, the love of all existences,
and in the love of all existences, the love of God,

God and all goodness.

—Iolo Morganwg, 1792

Be a Student of Life

May your journey
through the universal questions of life
bring you to a new moment of awareness.
May it be an enlightening one.
May you find embedded in the past,
like all the students of life before you,
the answers you are seeking now.
May they awaken that in you which is
deeper than fact,
truer than fiction,
full of faith.
May you come to know
that in every human event
is a particle of the Divine
to which we turn for meaning here,
to which we tend for fullness of life hereafter.
– Sr. Joan Chittister

Each One, Teach One

Worldwide, adult literacy can greatly contribute to a lower quality of life. That’s why organizations like ProLiteracy exist.

Laubach Literacy International began in 1930, when Dr. Frank C. Laubach was a missionary among the Maranao people of the Philippines. His concern about their poor living conditions led him to conclude that the ability to read and write was essential for them to begin to solve their problems. As the Maranaos learned to read, they would, in turn, teach other adults on a one-to-one basis that became known as “Each One, Teach One.” From 1935 to 1967, Dr. Laubach visited 105 countries answering calls for literacy help and created reading lessons in 315 languages.

In 2002, Laubach Literacy International merged with another of the world’s oldest and largest adult literacy organizations, Literacy Volunteers of America, to create ProLiteracy. Learn more about ProLiteracy and how you can contribute at https://www.proliteracy.org/About-Us/Mission-History!
