Sunday Inspiration: Feed the hungry
“What Jesus never said: ‘Feed the hungry only if they have papers.’
‘Clothe the naked only if they’re from your country.’
‘Welcome the stranger only if there’s zero risk.’
‘Help the poor only if it’s convenient.’
‘Love your neighbor only if they look like you.'”
-James Martin, S.J.
Thank you, Father Martin. I appreciate your thoughtful wisdom and this important reminder at a difficult time in human history.
That should really make some people think a little harder about their attitude towards others!
Yes, it should….. but will it? ……………..
Sadly, Perfect for our times………………..
Thank you for sharing this. Such wonderful words of wisdom. I don’t know why people are so uncaring and cruel to those who want a better life. So many people are unable (or don’t care) to see how others live in the world and the hardships they have to endure. Compassion seems to have gone out the window with some.
