interesting reading

I am reading a book called Take this bread by Sara Miles:

This quote stuck out to me:

What happened once I started distributing communion was the truly disturbing, dreadful realization about Christianity: You can't be a Christian by yourself.

She quotes Isaac of Nineveh a 7th century mystic saying: Did not Our Lord share his table with tax collectors and harlots? So do not distinguish between worthy and unworthy. All must be equal for you to love and serve.
