Behold, the eye of the LORD
is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
that he may deliver their soul from death,
and keep them alive in famine.
PSALM 33:18:19


IN THE BEGINNING
God said, "See, I have given you every plant yielding seed    
that is upon the face of all the earth,
and every tree with seed in its fruit;
you shall have them for food.
And to every beast of the earth
and to every bird of the air,     
and to everything that creeps on the earth,
everything that has the breath of life,
I have given every  green plant for food."
GENESIS 1: 29
Jesus assured us:  "Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied." Luke 6:21b
These all look to thee,
to give them their food in due season.
When thou givest to them,
they gather it up;
when thou openest thy hand,
they are filled with good things.   
PSALM 104:27-28

BLESSED TRINITY -  FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT - OUR GOD,
THE HUNGRY NEED YOUR BENEVOLENT HELP;
INCREASE THE YIELD OF THE EARTH SO THAT ALL MAY BE FED;
INSPIRE ALL MANKIND TO ENGAGE IN GENEROSITY TO THE NEEDY.

THE
HUNGRY

THE
SINNERS

BLESSED TRINITY - FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT - OUR GOD,
BE OUR DELIVERERS, ACCEPT OUR SORROW FOR OUR SINS,
FORGIVE ALL OF OUR PAST SINS, AND STRENGTHEN US ,
SO THAT WE WILL SIN NO MORE; CREATE WITHIN US A RESTLESSNESS
TO DRAW US CLOSE TO YOU.

LET US HAVE CLEAN HEARTS READY INSIDE US FOR THE LORD JESUS, SO THAT HE WILL BE GLAD TO COME IN,
GRATEFULLY ACCEPTING THE HOSPITALITY OF THOSE WORLDS, OUR HEARTS.
                                                        Clement of Alexandria 3rd Century


Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun,
Which was my sin, though it were done before?
Wilt thou forgive that sin, through which I run,
And do run still, though still I do deplore?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.
Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won
Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun
A year or two, but wallow'd in, a score?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.
I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun
My last thread, I shall perish on the shore;
But swear by thyself, that at my death thy Son
Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore;
And, having done that, thou hast done;
I fear no more.
John Donne  17th century


While we were still weak, at the right time
Christ died for the ungodly.
Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man --
though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die.
But God shows his love for us
in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood,
much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God
by the death of his Son,
much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by
his life.
Not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord
Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received our
reconciliation.
ROMANS 5:6-9
Words of Jesus:  "The good man out of the good treasure of his heart produces good,
and the evil man out of his evil treasure produces evil;
for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks."    Luke 6:45

THE
DESPAIRING
THE WORDS OF JESUS:

Ask, and it will be given you;
seek and you will find;
knock and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives,
and he who seeks finds, and
to him who knocks it will be opened.
Or what man of you, if his son asks
him for bread, will give him a stone?
Or if he asks for a fish, will give him
a serpent?
If you then, who are evil, know how
to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your Father who
is in heaven give good things to
those who ask him!
Matthew 7:7-11
