Frances of Rome: When You Did for the Least Ones
LEVITICUS 19:1–2, 11–18 ; PSALM 19:8, 9,10, 15; MATTHEW 25:31–46
Frances of Rome, in the fourteenth century, can easily be patron of our lenten almsgiving, as we seek the
face of Jesus in hungry, naked, homeless, ill, or imprisoned people.
Jesus, visible in our neighbor, show us your face in the hungry and thirsty, the naked and homeless, the prisoner and the stranger. Move us to action so we may fulfill the ancient law to love God and neighbor. Amen.
