“Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” Luke 9:58
Do I know how to be with the poor, or do I shield myself from the sufferings of others?
Jesus, you are our example in all things. Show us how to embrace poverty of spirit; to share willingly and joyfully with those in need. Amen.
