Yesterday at mass, the Catholic Church recognized "World Day of the Poor". This is an annual day of recognition instituted by Pope Francis so that "throughout the world, Christian communities can become an ever-greater sign of Christ's charity for the least, and most, in need". If we think of the beatitudes, Jesus asks each of us to be merciful -
but what does "Showing mercy" look like? Mercy can take many forms, and caring for those who are in need - whether it be donating to a foodbank, volunteering at a homeless shelter, or giving a few dollars to someone in need - are all ways we can show mercy and live as Jesus has taught us.
Today we pray for those in need.
Guide us to be merciful in our deeds and in our thoughts.
Help us to continue to embrace
our spiritual theme of a Family of Faith
by showing love, grace, empathy,
and sharing our resources
with those who are less fortunate than us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
your only son our Lord.
