For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ [Matthew 25:35-40]
Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me. Do we take the words of Jesus seriously? Mr. Dick Hackett will speak to us about serving the poor in Memphis from his experience as Executive Director of Catholic Charities of West TN. Join us for good conversation about how serving the poor is an essential component of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.
