“We know that our liberation is at hand and that in and through our struggles, the reign of God is at hand.
Yes, we know that the day will come (in fact, in many ways it is already here) when there will be no more borders in the Americas and people will freely travel back and forth at will, there will be no more dictators or fake-democracies but all will live together as one family, the former military generals will be managers of large farms while the former navy admirals will head fishing fleets so that by their common work, there will be no more poor or hungry-how beautiful it will be to convert them from agents of death into agents of life. Yes, I see the day when there will be no more border patrols and the former agents of the migra will assist the new immigrant in finding housing and employment.
Yes, the day will come when the rich will go to eat frijoles y tacos with the poor while inviting them into their homes to enjoy their swimming pools, beautiful gardens, and plentiful barbecues. I see a day coming when the rich will convert and discover that their own wealth is the root source of their increasing unhappiness and thus freely choose to share their wealth with others. In doing so they will discover a happiness and a fulfillment they never dreamed possible. The poor too will convert and discover their innermost dignity and call. They too will come forth from the tombs of silence and powerlessness to be a voice and a power in the buildup of a new culture and a new civilization”
