Cry of the Poor


Blog Kate

Sr. Kate O’Neill, RNDM works in Kuya Center for Street Children in Quezon City

Recently during Pope Francis’ visit to the Philippines, he challenged us “to cry”. It is when our hearts are penetrated to the core and we feel our own vulnerability that we can transcend and transform. The street children of Manila challenge me “to cry”. They welcome me into their struggle, their pain and their joy. They have no pretense, no title, no home, sometimes no identity. Yet they are my “professors” in life. The “cry of the poor” must be my cry as well in seeking not only an identity and a home, but justice and a future full of hope for the children of the streets.

    Dear Sisters

    I congratulate you on the successful launching of this blog site. I appreciate your initiative and the way you are reaching out to the poorest of the poor. May the year of consecrated life be a time of renewal and strengthening of our continued commitment to the service of our brothers and sisters who are in need.

    We remind ourselves the words of Pope Francis “let us look at the past with gratitude, live the present with passion and embrace the future with hope”. May God bless you all.
