Pope Francis has continually shown us the way; it is not enough, he tells us, simply to pray for the poor we need to try and find ways to be among them, just as Jesus did in those moments when they needed Him most.
There are many, many poor people on the Zulu Mission, who are no strangers to sacrifice ... to going without ... and to living with none of the modern comforts most of us take for granted.
If we cannot be with them in person, we can share with them in spirit by helping to improve their lives in some small way.
Help provide spiritual and physical comfort to those in need perhaps in the form of a food parcel, loving arms to comfort an orphaned child, nursing care for someone whos sick or aged, or the chance for a child to go to school.
Your Lenten offering will help you embrace and nurture your Catholic faith.
God bless you and give you all the graces you need to make this a blessed and sacred time for Our Lord and His Church.
