Today I want to highlight a great act of mercy from the Quinquennial Congress of the Secular Franciscan Order. For this Year of Mercy the order decided to help the people of St. Louis by offering “Blessing Bags” to the homeless and needy of St. Louis. All of the fraternity members attending the Q had collected toiletries and food that were collected and packaged yesterday. The Blessing Bags were given to the St. Anthony’s Pantry which serves 800 families and individuals every week. Kudos to my brothers and sisters who did a great job in helping to leave a lasting act of love for this wonderful city.
