‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Mt_25:31-46
Hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, ill and in prison? When Lord, did we see you in any of those conditions? Whenever you saw one of these least of my brethren! Did we turn on the TV today, beloved? Did we read the newspapers? Did we walk outside or drive to the store and not see any of these? There are so many in our world today, beloved, who are begging our help. It’s Lent! Let’s try to take notice and offer a little help, if we can! And Jesus will say the same to us! Whenever you helped the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did it for me!
