News and Readings:


Where you will find abject poverty will most likely be under your own roof. It will be with some family member, a close friend, a professional colleague, a fellow volunteer, someone whom you can easily find pathetic, without one plea. Respect their dignity. You will see in them, poor as they are, a new face of God, someone who is as worthy as you to receive their due. And you will most likely meet Jesus in them.

-Br. Curtis Almquist 
Society of Saint John the Evangelist
