How do we care for the marginalized?

A new book

Love and Care for the Marginalized, 40 Meditations, Spiritual Outreach Reflections for Catholics by Anne DeSantis is about learning to be kind and loving disciples of Jesus. That’s it. These meditations include a quote, a reflection, a prayer and a call to action. It is not enough to know what we are called to do, but that we act as Christians.

Who is quoted?

Scriptures, saints, and world leaders all have a place in learning to listen, love and care for those in our daily life. This is not about searching for the marginalized, but rather seeing them right in front of you.

What is needed today?

Active, compassionate listening. Treating the people we encounter as Jesus did and would. Caring about others. Living out the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
