Today’s Readings

Reflect: Approximately 1/3 of the world’s population lives in some form of poverty (living on less than $2 daily). Even if we do not directly feel the effects of poverty, we have seen images of its existence. We know God’s will, but sometimes it is difficult to feel God’s presence. As we ponder the hardships of poverty, let us feel a union to those who are poor: one that inspires us to pray and act with passion and hope.

Pray: Holy Spirit, strengthen me to see what you see and hear what you hear. Deepen my desire to act faithfully and with kindness, throughout Advent and beyond. Amen.

Act: Read about the empowerment of seed fairs, authored by CRS President Ken Hackett:
Remember rural framers in your prayer today.
