Gebre Menfes Kidus,
This quote is beautiful and moves me to tears. Are you on facebook? If so, you should post it there.
I used to refrain from giving something to beggars, figuring that many might be crooks. But over time I have realized, through the teaching of the Church, that they might also be Christ or an angel, and who am I to judge? Now, I try to help them out if I can, and when I do, I always ask them for their first name and I tell them that I will pray for them, and I try to remember to do this. What they do with the money and the prayers is ultimately their business. I don't like to talk about this so I won't go into more details but I think that when we start to see Our Lord in the least of our brethren, we will stop missing the chances to get closer to Him.
Amen. And thank you.
