When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
when I was thirsty you gave me to drink.
Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to Me.
Come and enter the house of My Father.
When I was a stranger, you opened your doors;
when I was naked, you gave me clothes.
When I was tired, you gave me peace;
when I was frightened, you calmed me down.
When I was small, you taught me to read;
when I was lonely, you gave me your love.
I was in prison, you visited me;
WhenI was sick and you took care of me.
In a strange country, you gave me a home;
when I had no job, you found me one.
When I was wounded, you took care of it;
looking for friendship, you gave me your hand.
Whether I was black, or white or yellow;
mocked at or insulted, you carried my cross.
When I was old, you smiled at me;
when I couldn't find peace, you brought it to me.
You saw me: full of spit and blood;
dirty with sweat, still you said you knew me.
You were on My side in times of despise;
in the hour of joy, we were together.
O God, Who knowest us to be set in the midst of such great perils, that, by reason of the weakness of our nature, we cannot stand upright, grant us such health of mind and body, that those evils which we suffer for our sins we may overcome through Thine assistance. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. continue reading
