- Psalms 112:9/
Reflection: It is not enough for us to reach out and help those in need. We must help them to discover the values that enable them to build a new life and to take their rightful place in society with dignity and justice.
- Pope John Paul II
Prayer: O Lord, may I not be satisfied with handing the poor a fish when I can teach them how to fish. Let me not only fill their stomachs with food but also take the time and energy to fill their spirits with dignity.
