Awareness of Others

Our scriptures today call us to be there for one another and to serve.  We are called to an awareness of others, their needs, their hopes and their dreams.   During this Lenten season and each day we must follow our Lord’s command to care for the poor, the hungry, the homeless and strangers in any way that we can.  We need to be there for one another the same way Jesus was for his early followers.  Jesus listened to and was present to those in need.  As we strive to imitate Jesus and be there for one another let us remember to pray and ask for God’s guidance and strength to “bless us with an awareness of the people around us.  Open our eyes to see your face in each person we meet and give us the courage to serve the poor with your love and mercy every day.”
