In the gospel, Jesus Christ the King says whatever we do for the most vulnerable among us, we do for him. When we care for people who are hungry, strangers, sick, imprisoned—we care for Jesus. Catholic Relief Services, the charitable arm of the American bishops supported by Catholics throughout the U.S., makes gifts available that provide education, feed families, turn on the water, improve health, as well as support sustainable farming and emergency help. Through Catholic Relief Services you can contribute to counseling for former child soldiers, provide help for trafficked girls, and train and empower people to earn a living and build a future; by caring for these, we do, indeed, care for Christ. The Gift of Hope catalogs, containing these gifts and others, will be distributed after Mass and are also available in the kiosk in the narthex. Or use this link to view the catalog online:
Thank you for your support of CRS and for the “least among us”.
