Peter’s Pence Collection – Be a Witness of Charity Embarking on the third year of his pontificate, Pope Francis continues to call each of us to be a witness of charity. “To love God and neighbor is not something abstract,” he said, “but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely.” Pope Francis shows through his actions what it means to serve our brothers and sisters and give them the love of Christ. Let us follow his example of service so that all people might have the joy of receiving Jesus through our presence: “And you are, dear brothers and sisters, the face of Jesus.” Donut Sunday – Sunday, June 7 – Hosted by KJT #40 – Thank you!
