Is not this the fast that I choose:
    to loose the bonds of injustice,
    to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
    and to break every yoke?  —Isaiah 58:6

Because love is an act of courage, not of fear, love is a commitment to others. No matter where the oppressed are found, the act of love is commitment to their cause—the cause of liberation.  —Paulo Freire, translated By Myra Bergman Ramos, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Hear my deep commitment to love-in-action, God: let me join anew the cause of liberation, the case against injustice, the breaking of the yoke of oppression. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
