Recently we commemorated the Sixth World Day of the Poor. How providential that we should reflect upon, or better yet, act upon the circumstances of our brothers and sisters who struggle during this time of gift buying, busyness and the hectic holiday season that awaits us. The theme for this year, “For Your Sakes Christ Became Poor”—is a perfect reminder! As Pope Francis related: “Where the poor are concerned, it is not talk that matters. What matters is rolling up our sleeves and putting our faith into practice through a direct involvement, one that cannot be delegated.” As we prepare for the celebrations ahead, may we all commit to sharing at least a bit of our resources—be it time, prayer or assistance—with those most in need.
