To all who have responded to our requests and have donated, we give thanks to you from all the families you help. The partnership of giving is a special one created by faith, bonded by sacrifice, nurtured by love and blessed by God. We cannot fail if you remember us.
There is perhaps no more heart-wrenching sight than the malnourished and starving. These sights demand a response from us. We know there is food in abundance; we know we are a nation that generally overeats. We know that often the hunger problem is tied into politics. We know all these facts. Our own share in God’s abundant gifts to us demands that those gifts spill out for those in need. The gospel moves from the practical, tangible level to the mystery of God’s abundance and excess; from our being in control to surrendering ourselves so that God provides all we need. (Living Liturgy, p.150)
God’s great desire is for us to have a relationship of love with one another, to spend time with others, to get to know the hearts and minds of others. What else matters, except to give others our gifts of time, attention, and crisis assistance?
