Dark Corners

If you are poor or needy,
if you are despised by all,
if you are a sinner,
then Christ considers you to be his friend
and he welcomes you to his banquet table.

If you are looking for Jesus,
you’ll find Him in the midst
of those who are being
crucified, rejected, alienated and oppressed.
He is in the dark corners of your neighborhood,
waiting for you to help Him.
Unless we stand shoulder to shoulder
with the poorest of the poor,
we will not find the crucified Christ,
nor experience the richness of His resurrection.

Unbind the poor –
the physically poor and the spiritually poor –
and give them something to eat –
either bread or the Bread of Life.

    Succinct, perfect….no theological obfuscation understandable to only a few erudite persons. Thank you, Gerry. I would like to print up hundreds of copies and distribute them in the marketplaces I visit almost daily and on the street corners.
