  1. Matthew 25:
    34 Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38 And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39 And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’

  2. (Snif…snif… must be allergies….)
    This Santa Claus is worthy of his namesake. God bless the little “Number One Elf” and his poor bereaved family.

  3. Relationship building in Nursing home environments can bring about beautiful departures and many graces for the family suffering the loss of their loved one.

    Start with finding a nursing home near you.
    Do they offer their residents an opportunity to pray the rosary weekly.
    Many homes don’t have anyone interested in coming in to lead their residents in prayer.

    Start one.

    Share your time.
    Get to know the family.
    Be present.

    Your presence and God’s timing will change your life.

    Speaking from experience here.
    You too can be a Santa for an “elder” child.
