At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made,
how many great things we have done.
We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat,
I was naked and you clothed me,
I was homeless and you took me in.
Hungry not only for bread — but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing — but naked for human dignity and respect.
Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks — but homeless because of rejection.
The Volunteers’ Prayer
Lord, may you smile upon me, that I with an open heart give my time and help my fellow parishioner by doing what I can, with love.
Lord may you be pleased with me and let me be aware to not judge others but to feel joy in giving.
Lord let me always know that each little act of kindness and the small tasks I do
are acts of grand proportions and are reflections of you.
Thank you Lord for letting me have in my heart, soul and mind the wisdom and the knowledge of the power of being kind and
thank you for the opportunity that I encounter every day to give my smile or kind word to empower another’s way
for we are all linked to each other and with your grace from heaven above guide me to follow your footsteps
and shine through my heart and life your love.
