Lent is a time for reflecting on how Jesus suffered, but also on how he cared for children and elders, the poor and the ill. Lent is a season for reaching out to those who struggle. It’s about following the example our Lord set throughout His earthly life.
Abraham, a displaced 14 year-old from Syria, is one of these struggling people. After his family perished in an airstrike, he escaped to Jordan, where he still suffers from the trauma that’s devastated his life.
A woman in Armenia named Anna is also trying to survive. At 92, she’s on her own, frequently ill and so poor that she literally burns trash to stay warm.
In honour of our Lord’s sacrifice on Good Friday — as we look forward to Easter’s joy — can you support these brothers and sisters in need and others like them? Reach out with us as we offer struggling families the food, shelter, medicine, education and pastoral care they need.
Thank you for your generous support and may you have a blessed Lent.
