For the Lord hears the needy and does not turn His back on captives.  – Ps 69:34

Reflection.  Jean Vanier said: “I have learned more about the Gospels from handicapped people, those on the margins of our society, those who have been crushed and hurt, than I have from the wise and prudent.”

Prayer.  Dear Lord, I want to see Your face in the least of my brothers and sisters.  Teach me the secret of caring about the plight of the poorest of the poor.
