"Human and Christian life calls for growth. Such growth comes through prayer, reflection, and study. There is a need for all of us, including myself, to recognize this priority in our lives today. As a Pilgrim People of God who constitute the Church today, let us keep on searching for ways in which all of us are able to respond to the challenge of growth in prayer and knowledge. Such growth brings life; without it, we stagnate."
- Archbishop Murphy June 17, 1980
