    I was really challenged by this homily. However, I am confused on how to go about serving the poor. In my area of Houston, there are fairly well dressed men that stand on the same corners everyday asking for money or food. They seem to be working as a team because they meet up at the end of the day. Once, I went to Taco Bell and got one of them food, but the same guy is out there everyday. I feel like they are not really poor, but just taking people’s money. I see true poverty and humility at St. Vincent De Paul Society. Should I give these people money on the streets or just give them a card to go to St. Vincent’s? I thought maybe I could give them a PB and J and info about St. Vincent’s? How do you handle those situations?

    In Christ,
    Mary Lou

    A truly wonderful message.
    Please propagate 40 days for life for the most helpless among us. The witness opposing the tearful heart aching atrocity directly effecting approaching 2 billion families world wide. The names of these billions of helpless children agonizingly killed are known only to God. It is proven, that in this time of virtual silence in the media, (and even when there are reports, though there are recent heartfelt exceptions — the discussions lean so much toward the intellect) that women who experience witness of help and the life of her child she protect his or her life.
    I shed heart aching tears at my failings. But I need to ask, what is the overall response in the most immense in sheer numbers tear filled atrocity that has ever been visited on humankind? Yes, I agree with the Pope that we need not talk about it *all* of the time. The praising of Jesus in thanksgiving and fruit of the witness really brings joy to the heart. And it has been gradually growing since 2007, and answers Pope John Paul II’s; The US Catholic Bishops in 1995; and others calls in so many way. Evangelization and sanctity of life taken to the streets first and highest among them.
    With these children being murdered; children dieing of starvation; and so many people dying in martyrdom and warfare — it has approached or maybe even surpassed 1/3 part of humankind killed by plagues of evil.
    The thousands of ”Lazarus” are starving for life.
    I plead with tears, that like other dioceses, this is propagated to every Parish.
    Yours In Jesus’ Love and Peace,

    What a difference a day makes. Yesterday when you spoke this homily, you had no idea when Pope John Paul II would become a saint. Now, this April, when Blessed John Paul II looks at you, he can say to Jesus, “I know that one.” What a difference a day makes. Great sermon, as always.
