“We respect and love all religions. We never put down anyone’s religion, or uphold one religion to the exclusion of others. What we want is to believe and respect interfaith religion, inclusive of all faith traditions. In our community spiritual practices, we invoke our prayers to the Divine, rather than invoking any particular name or form of God to the exclusion of others.”

-Sister Lucy Kurien, Maher

“My dear students…any time you see a woman or a child begging on the street…the aged men left on the street, can you stop…and ask, ‘Do you need some help?’ And please call me up.” -Sister Lucy Kurien, Maher.

“I have nothing,” she told her mentor, a priest. “What will I do?”

“You have love in your heart,” he told her.

“But with just love, what will I do?”

Here’s what she did.

“Maher means ‘Mother’s Home’ in Marathi. And she created the warmth of a mother’s home for the destitute, homeless, children as well as women. That seed has become a big tree today and all of us can partake of its shade but behind it lies such small stories of deep transformation.”  -Sachi Maniar from Sister Lucy the Mother Teresa of Pune

If we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

“I2I” performed by DCapella; songwriters Patrick DeRemer and Roy Freeland

I2I

Performed by DCappella

Yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah

Got myself a notion
And one I know that you’ll understand
To set the world in motion
By reaching out for each other’s hand
Maybe we’ll discover
What we shoulda known all along, yeah

One way or another, together’s where we both belong
If we listen to each other’s heart (oh yeah)
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

If a wall should come between us
Too high to climb, too hard to break through
I know that love’ll lead us
And find a way to bring me to you

So don’t be in a hurry
Think before you count us out, oh
You don’t have to worry
I won’t ever let you drown
(Nothing’s gonna stop us now)

If we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Yes, we are seein’) eye to eye we’re seein’ it
Seein’ it eye to eye
(Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye)
We’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Eye to eye we’re seein’ it
We’re seein’ it eye to eye
Love is why we’re seein’ it eye to eye
(Eye to eye, yeah) eye to eye we’re seein’ it
Eye to eye

If you’re ever lonely, then stop
You don’t have to be
After all, it’s only a beat away from you to me
(Take a look inside and see)

Yeah, if we listen to each other’s heart
We’ll find we’re never too far apart
And maybe love is a reason why
For the first time ever, we’re seein’ it eye to eye

Seein’ it eye to eye
Seein’ it eye to eye
Eye to eye
For the first time
For the first time (seein’ it eye to eye)
Eye to eye
Seein’ it
Seein’ it, baby
Seein’ it eye to eye
Yeah for the first time ever (eye to eye)
Hey yeah
Seein’ it, baby
We’re seein’ it eye to eye (eye to eye)
Yeah, seein’ it
C’mon, baby (seein’ it eye to eye)
Eye to eye, eye to eye, eye to eye, eye to eye
Eye to eye, eye to eye (yeah)
Eye to eye
