Out of the Mouth of Children and Babies!
Well, the Bible tells us . . . "Out of the mouths of children and babies you have established strength on account of your adversaries, in order to silence the enemy and foe." Psalm 8:2
And so it was this past October Halloween weekend, the children turned out with their moms and dads in order to silence the proud and to exalt the lowly. The kids came to help serve 70,000 + homeless in the Los Angeles area. Now their lesson of innocent giving may live on in November and they may even inspire and teach us adults to leave pride behind and serve the poor broken homeless in December.
In the photos, you will see that Diego has granola bars to give, Rebecca has clothing to lay out and little Raj receives a toy truck from a homeless brother!
Enjoy the childlike joy - live the innocent inspiration!
"Christ remains with us not only through the Mass but in the 'distressing disguise' of the poor. To live with the poor is a contemplative vocation, for it is to live in the constant presence of Jesus" - Dorothy Day, +1980
