WITH THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT STILL FRESH IN OUR HEARTS & MINDS, SPARE A THOUGHT FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE THAN YOURSELF



As I walked down the busy footpath, knowing I was late for an important meeting, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days.



Wearing what can only be described as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, my heart was touched by this persons condition.



Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them.



Recalling some long ago priest who made an admonition to "care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked," I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person.



Yes, where some people saw only rags, I saw a hidden beauty. A small voice inside my head kept saying, "Reach out, reach out!"




So I did..........



I won't be at Church for a few weeks!!
