A Meditation for Advent

And the Word of God came to John son of Zechariah....

"For the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."

"And the crowd asked him: What then shall we do?"  

And he answered them, "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."    

Luke 3:51-53


A Mother and Child

This picture of a woman and child was sent to me by Ana Aquilera, a young Honduran woman, working among the poor of her community. They stand in their barren home in the mountains near Copan Ruinas with no more furniture than a stove, a table and a bed. The expression on her face shows the deep sorrow of poverty in Honduras.

Ana, herself, is unemployed, income to her family is minimal, and she is behind on the rent.   But as a Christian, she has responded to the Word of God and is reaching out to the poor.  She visits the poor children around her, giving them clothing, shoes and medicine.  To see more of her work, see her Facebook page (Click Here).
