Dear Friend of the Poor,
I'm writing to ask for your help in feeding hungry children.
Throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, count-
less mothers are unable to ease their children's
hunger pains. Like Mary watching her Son in agony
on the cross, these mothers must bear the pain of
helplessly watching their children suffer.
During the season of Lent, we reflect on the ultimate
sacrifice Christ made for us. What better way to honor and glorify Him
than by making a sacrifice to help others who are suffering? Our Lenten
devotional calendar features daily Gospel readings and suggested
activities that encourage us all to embrace the sacrificial spirit of Lent.
Through Jesus' selfless act of love, we have the gift of eternal life. I'm
praying that you will share Christ's love with others by giving a gift to
provide lifesaving food to hungry children and their families. Your sacrifi-
cial gift will help answer the prayers of desperate mothers who struggle
as their children suffer. Your compassion and generosity will be a testa-
ment to the love of Christ shining through you.
May God bless you abundantly.
"I give you a new commandment: love one another.
As I have loved you, so you also should love one
another." (John 13:34)
A servant of the poor,
