We must help the weak

May 16, 2018 6:00 am

“In every way I have shown you that by hard work of that sort we must help the weak, and keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (ACTS 20: 35)

It is a part of almsgiving—to share with others what we have more of and they have less of. It is not just about giving money; it is about sharing time when we have one hour more than they do; it is about sharing experience when we are more experienced or about “helping the weak” when we are stronger. When we help we need to remember to respect others’ dignity and also that “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”

“Your word, O Lord, is truth; consecrate us in the truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
