Nathan Strand sent me this quote this morning and I had planned to use it on the show, but left it on my printer.
WHO ARE THE POOR?
For GOOD people, the poor are friends to be helped,
For those INDIFFERENT they are embarrassments to be ignored,
For the GREEDY RICH they are cheap labor to be exploited,
For the POLITITIANS they are the masses to be manipulated.
But for CHRISTIANS they are God’s saving presence calling us to repentance, generosity and justice.
Fr. Shay Cullen, Manila, Philipines
