Dorothy Day says it much better than I can:

"One of the greatest evils of the [the] sense of futility. Young people say, 'What good can one person do? What is the sense of our small effort?' They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time, we can be responsible only for the action of the present moment. but we can beg for an increase of love in our hearts that will vitalize and transform all our individual actions, and know that God will take them and multiply them, just as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes"

"Love cast our fear, but we have to get over the fear in order to get close enough to love them."
