Journey With The Pope – 10/8/2020

MONDAY AUGUST 10, 2020 

“I would like to invite the young to perform a gesture of tenderness towards the elderly especially the loneliest, in their homes and residences, those who have not seen their loved ones for many months.  Dear young people each one of these elderly people is your grandparent!  Do not leave them by themselves.  Use the inventiveness of love, make telephone calls, video calls, send messages, listen to them and, where possible in compliance with the healthcare rules, go to visit them too.  Send them a hug.  They are your roots.  An uprooted tree cannot grow.  It does not blossom or bear fruit.  This is why the bond and connection with your roots is very important.  “The blossom of a tree comes from what it has underground,” says a poet from my homeland.

Psalm 112

Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
who greatly delights in his commands.
His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
the upright generation shall be blessed.

Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice;
He shall never be moved;
the just one shall be in everlasting remembrance.

Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

An evil report he shall not fear;
his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is steadfast; he shall not fear
till he looks down upon his foes.

Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

Lavishly he gives to the poor, 
his generosity shall endure forever;
his horn shall be exalted in glory.

Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

Blessings from Team MISSIO!
