It is not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving – St. Mother Teresa.
Cloth is one of the three basic needs of human beings. But there are people in this world who don’t have this essential need of existence. To give an underprivileged person a pair of clothes is as good as dressing him with self-respect. With this objective, we have distributed garments to the poorest of the poor women and men in our parishes. ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’ (Mt: 25:40). This noble thought inspires everybody to contribute towards the wellbeing of the humanity. Apparently in our journey of helping the poor, South-East India Province meticulously planned along with MDO to carry out its social welfare programs. The MDO at Rome made this valuable contribution for this noble cause.
Our province is actively engaged in number of relief works at different phases. Most of our relief works are organized through province with the collaboration of confreres. Another new initiative is undertaken this year to reach out the poor and needy in our missions. Indeed we are grateful to MDO at Rome, the General Administration and Fr. Thomas Chozhithara for the timely financial assistance towards purchase of clothes. This is year, we have distributed 1250 Sarees & Dhotis for 1250 people. On behalf of Province Social Service wing, I express sincere thanks to all the confreres for your kind cooperation and moral support to execute this welfare program. The contentment attained by one through helping the less fortunate is the greatest achievement, we could ever have in our life.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one- St. Mother Teresa.
