PRAY FOR WISDOM AND FAITH IN THE MIDST OF EVIL. March 4. Is it not to share your bread with the hungry. The Nkosis sat together at the beginning of Lent to discuss how they would fast and make their acts of love and sacrifice. “Let us have a family fast day once a week,” Amy suggested. “But we should really also give the food we would have eaten, or the money to a poor or homeless family, as well as some clothes.” “And on other days? “ Busi asked. “Let us pray about that, to help us choose meaningful acts of love and sacrifice, like always switching off lights or just for once giving up colddrinks, or writing a message to your grandmother and praying for peace in these troubled times,” Dad said. Reflect, share and act. Scripture: Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house, when you see the naked to cover him and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Isaiah 58;1-9. Pope Francis: We know that approximately a third of all food produced is thrown away and whenever food is thrown out it is as if it were stolen from the table of the poor. LS 50. SA Youth Responsibilities Bill 8: The right to own property places on me the responsibility to give generously to charity and good causes whenever I am able to do so.
