This Lent, send hope to the suffering...
In Hosanna in northern Ethiopia, food insecurity is a longtime obstacle. Drought and violent ethnic conflicts, along with natural disasters and now exposure to the coronavirus, have made starvation a real threat. But there is hope. Local priests and Sisters are responding through food programs and with pastoral care. Through their efforts, they bring the comforting presence of the Lord, Who also knew suffering, and the reminder that no one who suffers is ever abandoned by God. It is a message that all of us, in our own struggles, need to hear.
Your Lenten sacrifice to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith can help these missionaries in Ethiopia and in so many places throughout the Missions bring hope through their embrace of loving care. Through your prayers and generous help, a mission family experiencing a Good Friday reality may come to know the saving hope of the Resurrection.
This Lent, will you send life-giving support for the suffering poor? Just $40 – $1 for each day of Lent – helps to buy food and supplies for so many. If you can double your gift to $80, even more relief can be sent to mission parishes, for outreach, feeding programs, and health centers. Anything you are moved to send will be a blessing for the life-saving work of missionaries.
