Over 10,000 Sandwiches

Over 10,000 sandwiches have been made by your hands to feed the hungry and homeless since last August. Hundreds of people have come through our doors and we have been able to serve food to people in need. Not only food, but we have prayed with people searching for solace from God our Creator. You have provided sleeping bags and clothing to those in need, as well. So many of you have helped prepare the food as well as serve it.  Your smiles and warmth have communicated God’s love to hundreds of people each Tuesday. This picture represents just a few people who have recognized the joy of service.

Thank you for not forgetting the poor. Thank you for recognizing that Jesus had a special focus for caring for the poor. Thank you for sharing the love of God in countless ways. I think of this poem by Teresa of Avila when I think of all the service that you have participated in this year. God bless you and may we always know the joy of service even with our very busy schedules.

 

Christ Has No Body --- Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)

Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
