When Did We See You?

‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’

These words of Jesus from Matthew's gospel are echoed in those he will speak to Saint Paul on the road to Damascus - "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting."

What we do to the least, we do to the Lord.

How am I noticing the Lord in the midst of my day? 

We pray to be more attentive to Christ Jesus, for as the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins reminds us, 
"...Christ plays in ten thousand places, 
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his. 
To the Father through the features of men's faces."
