In Christ Jesus our Lord God most high has become most low, most lowly, wounded, vulnerable, ever disguised in the distressing face of the poor and always at the door, though we are so liable to miss him.
A drowsy complacency is always a temptation. How will I notice the poor one very near that I may find repugnant? Who is the ignored or forgotten outcast in my world?
Like Saint Vincent de Paul whom we remember today, we want to be more and more attentive to the poor in our midst.
