The spirit of service should become part of our characeras a necessary ingredient in our discipline. Cultivate the habit of service for its own sake, free from all motive and all thought of reward. Service of prisoners, unmindful of the ‘waste of time’ that this entails, feeding, protecting and loving the children of the poor even though they be shabby or filthy, helping woman-kind irrespective of faith, community, colour or nationality and, in general, to serve others, sacrificing one’s own interest - that should be our insignia.
