Something about the baptismal covenant

Sojourners sent this quotation out today. What Chávez is saying here is so, so focused, so radiant with clarity, that it inspires me greatly. I think I will post it on all three blogs because it speaks to the theme and purpose of each one:

The first principle of nonviolent action is that of noncooperation with everything humiliating.

- César Chávez

Remember that the baptismal covenant requires us to respect the dignity of every human being. It does not say "every human being except oneself." Think about it.
