The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor

The 40 days of Lent are rapidly approaching. This week, Ash Wednesday begins the time to purge, clean out, deny ourselves, take up our crosses and follow Christ to Calvary, burrow into hell and Resurrect to new life on Easter Sunday.

Who would like to join us in the theme "The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor" for Lent? Though Christ was rich, he emptied himself, left heaven and became poor like us. How can we go and do likewise?

Here are three things each can do throughout Lent to gear up and gear down to hear His voice and discover more insights about the poverty of Christ on the Cross within the theme, "The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor."

1. If you have not done so already, Subscribe! to receive the free daily reflections sent out by our voice for the poor, - just enter your email address in the top, far right column of the main page. Read them when they arrive.

2. For 40 days, in your morning or evening prayer, ask the Lord to reveal to you your own poverty. What makes you a poor wretch. You may not know right now; you may even think you are nearly perfect! But, ask the Lord to reveal that to you. Ask for His help with your poverty so that in Him you can become rich.

3. Put aside small alms for the poor every day. Example, if you usually order a soda when you eat out ... try free water for your meal! Then calculate the savings over 40 days and donate that amount to the poor at or mail it to SFM, P.O. Box 42001, Los Angeles, CA 90042

If you do this, the Lord will hear you. The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor!
