Help is needed

Word has reached me that the Effingham Catholic Charities food pantry is bare and your help is needed!

If you're in the area and have the ability and the loving generosity, please swing by Catholic Charities and drop off whatever nonperishable food goods you can.

I will leave you with a few thoughts from the Holy Father:

Love of neighbor, grounded in the love of God, is first and foremost a responsibility for each individual member of the faithful... (Deus caritas est 20)

...Christian charity is first of all the simple response to immdediate needs and specific situations: feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, caring for and healing the sick, visiting those in prison, etc. (Deus caritas est 31a)
