“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 25:43




“’…I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat,

I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,

I was a stranger and you did not invite me in,

I needed clothes and you did not clothe me,

I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’”


– Matthew 25:43 (NIV)






“Today there is an inescapable duty

to make ourselves the neighbour of every man, no matter who he is,

and if we meet him, to come to his aid in a positive way,

whether he is an aged person abandoned by all,

a foreign worker despised without reason,

a refugee,

an illegitimate child wrongly suffering for a sin he did not commit,

or a starving human being

who awakens our conscience by calling to mind the words of Christ:

‘As you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ (Mat 25:40)


Gaudium Et Spes – Joy and Hope (Vatican Council II, Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World)






O Lord, my God,

I thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed upon me,

and especially for the gift of faith.

Lord, grant that I reciprocate Your love for me

in a manner that is pleasing to You.


Lead me, Lord,

and grant that I will do Your will

and go and find You in the poor and the hungry,

in the sick, the lame and the crippled,

in the socially excluded,

in those on the fringes of society.


Help me, Lord, to look beyond myself,

beyond my family, and my own direct interests,

so that I will share my blessings

as well as Your love, joy, peace and hope

with those others who are less fortunate than me.








Lord, help me share Your love.
