The Mystery of Christ's Presence in the Homeless, the Poor, the Prisoner and the Outcast

A little over six months ago, Homeless In America set out to poll our readers and visitors about their personal understanding of how Christ may be truly present in the homeless, the poor, the prisoner and the outcast. Specifically, they were asked the following question: “Do you believe that you have a relatively good understanding as to why and how Christ is present in the outcast/homeless and could articulate it to others?”

There were 57 participants in the poll over the half-year time-period. Here is how they responded to the question …

* About 50% felt as though they had a good understanding of this mystery and believe they could articulate it to others.

* The remaining 50% felt as though they had somewhat of an understanding (29%) or believe they are completely unable (21%) to articulate this mystery to others.

"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' … I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'" Matthew 25:37-40
