Thought for the week ahead
We are like the little branch that quivers during a storm,
Doubting our strength and forgetting we are the tree
Deeply rooted to withstand all life’s upheavals.
WORLD DAY OF THE POOR
In 2016 Pope Francis established the World Day in his Apostolic Letter, Misericordia et Misera, to celebrate the end of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. Today has been set aside as World Day for the Poor with the theme: “Stretch forth your hand to the poor.”
Age-old wisdom has proposed these words as a sacred rule to be followed in life. Today these words remain as timely as ever. They help us fix our gaze on what is essential and overcome the barriers of indifference. Poverty always appears in a variety of guises, and calls for attention to each particular situation. In all of these, we have an opportunity to encounter the Lord Jesus, who has revealed himself as present in the least of his brothers and sisters.
