(NH) Deacon Mark and Nancy went downtown this morning after 830 Mass for St. Paul Street Evangelization.  In the Cathedral of SS Peter and Paul we got to meet our newest team member Daniel, who hails from Nativity of Our Lord Parish, volunteering as a Cathedral tour guide. Dan tells us he’s feeling called to do street evangelization again, which he used to do a couple of years back.  We look forward to having Dan work with us to bring Jesus and His Church to our Philadelphia and Lower Bucks community!

We distributed a few rosaries and nearly 50 religious medals.  Several people stopped to pray with us.  Please include these people listed at the bottom and their intentions in your prayers this week, and especially tomorrow, on Divine Mercy Sunday.

Many of the people we met were tourists and, as we have found with all of our visits to Philadelphia, some of the people we met were homeless.  We had one occasion where a homeless man who prayed with us left for awhile and then brought back a couple of his friends who also asked us to pray with them.  It is a tremendously moving experience to see Our Lord in the poor and to be able to pray with them for their basic needs.  I pray for a day when all of the Philadelphia homeless have shelter, all of the hungry have food, all of the unemployed find work, and all know the peace, joy, and love of Jesus and His Church ~ and for today, that the homeless we have prayed with get these needs met immediately through Christ our Lord. Amen!
