Mother Teresa used to say: Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.
This is, in essence, the spirit with which Pope Francis hailed the work that is being done at the Dublin Capuchin Day Centre with the homeless. He praised Brother Kevin Crowley’s ministry by saying: “You are a true brother of the people and a true brother of the poor. The Church has real need of this witness, so thank you. That’s the face of Jesus Christ”.
May Brother Kevin’s example help all of us to let the Holy Spirit make us the face of Jesus Christ who, through us, keep ministering the people, especially the suffering ones, by being their brother.
