At Christmastime the Peace is in the Poverty!

We just arrived back a little bit ago from the desert cities and now remember the many homeless women, children and men over the weekend that received backpacks, blankets, clothing, food, water, rosaries, Christmas toys and more.

Yesterday, we served Javier and Michael again. Both of these men had been shot in the head late at night near the Palm Springs International Airport in separate incidents over the summer and fall months by gang members that left them for dead. It's a blessing to give them both some hugs and support in their struggle to live.

A new homeless guy, just meeting him today for the first time in Palm Desert cried and cried with the surprise of gifts and help showing up on the mountainside as we drove off-road to find him. Another lady was collapsed on the ground in the heat of day in a field but intercepted by a policeman. We joined up with the police and assisted her with water, nourishment and clothing.

Well, these are just a few of many stories in just a short weekend of serving the homeless. Thank you for all your compassion, kindness and donation and BIG heart to help these poor souls.

Blessings and prayers for St. Jude the Apostle Church, Dr. and Jackie Treuting, Steve Yantzer, Bill Yantzer and pastor, Fr. Jim Stehly for all their Holiday gifts for the poor homeless as well as their love and support. Also, blessings to our spiritual director Fr. John Neiman and team support of Corpus Christi Church, Monsignor Kidney, St. Julie Billiart Church and Fr. Paul J. Hruby. May God bless our "desert storm" team, the brothers Manuel Estrada and Oscar Estrada and Orange County team, Mark Burke, Michael Valencia and Craig Palm.

Please make a prayer and a donation for these poor homeless souls we deliver to on the streets, 80,000 + in Southern California and beyond at

May the peace of His barn-born poverty be yours this Christmastime and throughout the New Year!
