Who is Saving Who?
It's strange that in our western culture we strive
to live-forever, and we deny that one day we
will pass from this life. But truly, our home is
with the Father. Someday we will meet there
and the Father will ask what we did with our
lives and how did we serve our brothers and
And that is when these children's love will
shine, for they will surround us and tell the
Father, "These people loved me when I was
poor. They fed me, they clothed me, they gave
me love and hope".
LOOK INTO THE EYES OF THESE CHILDREN AND SEE THE FACE OF CHRIST!!
The Beauty of God is Everywhere!
Finding the beauty here in Guaymas while
walking with those whose lives are filled with
pain, brought on by the evil of poverty, is my
gift from the Holy Spirit. Offering them hope in
their despair, a moment of rest for those
passing through, bringing some comfort to
those in pain, and most importantly, just
walking with them - even when at times all I
can do is cry - is a reminder of why the Father
made me a missionary.
To open our eyes and see God's beauty when others see pain and despair, is Francis' gift to his brothers and sisters who follow him — You and me together!
