I watched UTV Live this evening when this homeless woman told
how she tried to revive her friend 'Robbie'
who she discovered lifeless on High Street,
Belfast this morning and I cried.
This is not the society I want to live in where people die on the streets
and I am sure it is not the society anyone reading this posting wants.
May he rest in Peace and be in a better place. - John Dalat
When I first saw this photo/story on Facebook, I thought of St. Therese of Lisieux - it struck me there is a resemblance here - the woman looks a bit like St. Therese. Therese wrote how she took her place at the table of sinners - how she would have lived in a refuge for fallen women to reveal to them the love and mercy of God. This woman, her story seems to exemplify that same charity and love.
St. Therese, pray for us, especially those
most in need of mercy.
Song for this post here.
