“Lord, to those who hunger, give bread. And to those who have bread, give the hunger for justice.” A Latin American prayer
Forty million Americans struggle with hunger, the same as the number of people officially living in poverty, according Feeding America. Children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States.
Jesus calls us to love, to feed others and to be witnesses of God’s love. What are your plans to love fully and to tend and feed God’s sheep this day?
This message is adapted from “Faith reflections: Facing hunger in America” by Elizabeth Wolinski in the November 2006 issue of Café magazine. Today we observe Holy Cross Day, a day that honors and commemorates the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross for our salvation.
