Care for the Poor

We Believe:  The poor and vulnerable deserve our prayers, and our physical, emotional, and financial support. God command us to care for those who need the most help.

Scripture Tells Us:  1 John 3:17-18:  How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s good and sees one in need  and refuses to help?

Questions for Consideration:

  • How often do I think of those in material or emotional need?
  • How willing am I to spend my time, my physical talent, and my res9ourecs to help others?

“How many poor people today are like Bartimaeus (Mk 10:46-52), sitting on the roadside and looking for meaning in their lives! How many of them wonder why they have fallen so far and how they can escape! They are waiting for someone to come up to them and say: Take heart; rise, He is calling you.”
-  Pope Francis.
