No Boundaries

True story:
In 1921 in the south of Poland, following World War I, a Quaker nurse had come to a small Catholic village to bring healing and love to the people there. After a time she herself fell ill and subsequently died. Because of their love for this woman and her dedicated service to their town the villagers asked the Priest if she could be buried in the church cemetery, but the Priest was firm. It was a Roman Catholic town, a Roman Catholic territory, and church law forbade that any but baptized Roman Catholics be buried in the Catholic cemetery. The decision was made to have her buried just outside the cemetery fence in an adjacent lot. And so they did. The next morning the Priest was astounded to see that the villagers, faithful Catholics all, had gone out in the middle of the night and moved the fence.
Love has no boundaries. We all need each other. We all belong to the same family. Let's wrap our arms around each other. Let's go out move the fence!
