Novena - Day 6: May 11th

People marginalised by poverty

READ: Deuteronomy 15:7

But if there are any poor Israelites in your towns when you arrive in the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hard-hearted or tightfisted toward them.

Reflection: How might you offer some of your leisure time to offering hospitality or practical skills training through the Church community that carries Christ’s name and reputation in your community and the wider world?

Novena Prayer: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, hear me as I cry out for the economically poor. Your heart is already for them, so soften my heart and inspire my imagination that I can serve you here among the poor with my practical hospitality and skills. The first step towards enabling a social network is to open a door to a space to meet and share experience. May my church provide such a space as an expression of mercy.
