The ending of poverty must always be with us

Today is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, inspired by Father Joseph Wresinski (1917-88). Born into poverty himself, he became a priest, served those in emergency housing in France, and started an international movement to fight poverty in collaboration with the poor themselves. His goal was to unite everyone, in all walks of life, around those in extreme poverty. In the words of United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, “Let us remember that ending poverty is not a matter of charity, but a question of justice.”

TODAY'S READINGS: Romans 3:21-30; Luke 11:47-54 (470). “You have taken away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter.”

The Irish pastor said, “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven stand up!” and the whole church stood up.  And he said, “And those who want to go to hell, remain standing!” At the back of the church, old Murphy remained standing.   The pastor said, “Murphy, do you want to go to hell?”  Murphy said, “No, Father… I just hate to see you go there all by yourself!”
