Josh


Jesus Homeless

A few days ago,  seen a homeless man. I  stopped and gave him some change & asked him his name, after I prayed with him.  As I was leaving him, I heard a voice which tried telling me I was an idiot & a fool to do it. I began thinking maybe he wasn’t really homeless.

Today,as I was leaving my house,  I noticed my neighbor had someone raking his yard & cleaning it up for him. It looked like the homeless man. I ran to the store and did what I needed to do. When I was returning and I pulled  into my driveway, I seen the homeless man just leaving my neighbors. It was Josh the homeless man. I called his name and he asked me how I knew him. I smiled & said I remembered him. He smiled as did I. I handed him the few coins I had in my pocket & said God bless you and he went on his way.  Yes. He was the homeless man, and yes, he was most definitely, homeless.  Its not often we get a confirmation of something like this, but when we do, praise be to God. When we don’t, trust in God.

There is a quote I have been holding in my heart for many years and one try to live by.

“See God in all, Serve God in all, Love God in all” – Blessed Maria Teresa of St. Joseph, Foundress of the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus.

Please keep Josh in your prayers.

Absolute Joy Of Christ

“You will show me the path to life,
abounding joy in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever.” Psalm 16:11

I love serving the homeless. I have been very close in many ways to walking in their shoes. I don’t have much to give, but what I have, I have no problem giving to those who have less than I do. Its said in this world that “the one with the most toys wins”. I couldn’t disagree more with this worldly statement. I know for a fact that the less attachment to the things in this world you have , the more peace in Christ you attain.

Yesterday as I was walking to Our Lady of the Rosary Church in San Diego, I noticed a man laying on the ground. As I got closer, without even thinking about it, I looked through my purse and found a few dollars. He was sleeping and the more looked at his face the more I seen our Lord. I couldn’t believe how much he reminded me of our Lord.

I tucked the money I had into his jacket and he never knew it. I continued on to our Lady of the Rosary, purchased a few things I needed, along with a few St. Nicholas Holy Cards. On my way back, I noticed I still had two dollars in my purse. The man was still laying on the ground and I tucked two more dollars into his coat with a St. Nicholas Holy Card.

He never knew I was there and the joy this brought to me is growing. Glory, praise and honor to our Lord. I LOVE serving Him in this way. All I can do, I can do for Him. ALl I have to give, I can give for Him. Please pray for this man and all our homeless brothers and sisters.

The prayer on the holy card I tucked into his jacket read:

God, Our Father, we pray that through Your intercession of St. Nicholas, you will protect our children. Keep them safe from harm and help them grow and become worthy in Your sight. Give them strength to keep their Faith in You; and to keep alive their joy in your creation. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen

St. Nicholas, Patron of Children, pray for us. All Saints of our Lord, pray for us. Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us all
