(This just in… One of our Fat Beggars readers sends us this thought for the day. Please give this your meditative reflection and prayer today. I know I will. Hopefully we will find ways to represent Jesus in dark places.)
Terrible truth. Last night I watched a Nazi propaganda film made in the Warsaw Ghetto in May 1942.
It was reminiscent of Schindler’s List without any good outcome.
I eventually turned it off… It was only a nightmare on many levels wherein one was to show while many were starving there were wealthy victims who continued to live the better life.
I wondered “How might I be doing that, myself, now… While others are starving?”
Are we living in such a way we never go down streets where the homeless might congregate. Where those enslaved to drugs lurk. Where people without health insurance — huddle to pray desperately for help. And the lonely are!
O God help us to look, care and serve!
