The parable of the rich man and Lazarus invites us to reflect upon our attitude toward the poor. What can you do to respond to the needs of the poor in your community? Consider providing a meal for a shelter or serving at a soup kitchen or outreach center. Did you feel God’s presence during your visit? Did you see the face of Christ in any of the guests of this meal? Today’s Readings: Jeremiah 17:5–10; Psalm 1:1–2, 3, 4–6; Luke 16:19–31.
