Have you ever been so cold that you wake up with your teeth chattering? That’s what happens when you sleep in a city at an altitude of 7,896 feet without a blanket! The best present to give a child in Adigrat, Ethiopia is a blanket! And I am happy to say that someone has just donated 9,000 blankets for us to distribute to any children we find! Love in action!
“Only if I serve my neighbor can my eyes be opened to what God does for me and how much he loves me. The saints — consider the example of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta — constantly renewed their capacity for love of neighbor… No longer is it a question of a “commandment” imposed from without and calling for the impossible, but rather of a freely-bestowed experience of love from within, a love which by its very nature must then be shared with others. Love grows through love. From DEUS CARITAS EST BENEDICT XVI.
