“But you too, help one another: help one another always. In this way, by helping one another, we will do some good.” — Pope Francis
From Catholic Charities:
Pope Francis challenges everyone – Catholic or not – to make the world a better place. We’ve seen it in his addresses, his writings and in the way he lives his life. His inspiration is rooted in simplicity and everyday kindness. Plus, he has shared it is our duty to help those who are poor or marginalized. When you take the #PopesHopeChallenge you can show the world and the Pope that you are listening!
Pope Francis will be in the United States very soon! We’d love to show him some love by spreading acts of kindness all over the place! No, you don’t have to be Catholic to participate. Just think of some way to spread kindness!
Julia will be heading down to St. Vincent de Paul to to help serve the family evening meal. She will be joined by her high school class mates from Ville de Marie Academy.
What will you do to help us with our goal of showing 10,000 people know kindness this month?!
Will you share your ideas with me below? I’d love to see them!
James 2: 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. 20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[d]? 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”[e] and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
