I know, I know. Former Gov. Codey's changed appearance does feed into stereotypes of the homeless as disheveled and mentally ill when hundreds of thousands of families and children don't fit the stereotype. Still. this is an occasion for me to pause and admire the man, pray for people without homes, and to appreciate our home.
Almighty and eternal God, may your grace enkindle in all of us a love for the many unfortunate people whom poverty and misery reduce to a condition of life unworthy of human beings.
Arouse in the hearts of those who call you Father a hunger and thirst for social justice and for fraternal charity in deeds and in truth.
Grant, O Lord, peace to souls, peace to families, peace to our country and peace among nations. Amen
