Yesterday, the girls of Notre Dame Academy spread the gift of giving. They delivered 100s of PBJ sandwiches for homeless women, children and men living under bridges and alleys in the heart of Los Angeles. Sr. Jolisa, campus ministry director said about their outreach - “We teach the students that we are to open our hearts and give of ourselves to those in need.” The students get it. Each sandwich came lovingly wrapped, sealed and stapled with a "Share a Sandwich Prayer" card. They sweetened the delivery with 100s of creative personalized craft notes that were handed to each diner. Flowered with lots of hearts and compassion the cards read like a Hallmark factory, “Have a great day – Enjoy your PBJ!” and “You are special – Enjoy your sandwich!” HIA is thankful for the poor because as we bless them, they in turn bless us. Otherwise, how would we who are wealthy learn important eternal lessons of love and compassion? As we enjoy yesterday’s photos filled with grateful tears and smiles we contemplate, “Who is teaching who?” “Thank you” to Sr. Jolisa and the students of Notre Dame Academy! The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
