We are a street mission of hope and friendship for beggars, street vendors, storekeepers, and commuters. We are one desire of fulfillment. We are sojourners with one destination, beggars for meaning, co-responsible for a more human co-existence. We live in one city where the rich and the poor need each other as constant reminders that we were made by the same hand, and that only through a human presence is it possible to discover the true answer to the needs of the heart. It's not "us" and "them"; it's just us, "that we may all be one," as it is with the One who created us.
Frank Simmonds (1955- 2015) during the 2013 Way of the Cross over the Brooklyn Bridge
