  4. We are made for goodness… Bishop Desmond Tutu

Bishop Desmond Tutu wrote:

We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome: black, white, red, yellow, rich, poor, educated, not educated, male, female, gay, straight, all, all, all. We all belong to this family, this human family, God’s family.

My conclusion: This is an accurate quote.

Helmick, S.J. and Rodney L. Petersen. Published 2001 by Templeton Foundation Press. The quotation is found on page xiii.
