Matthew 10:37-42

And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because the little one is a disciple—amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward.

 For the homeless it is a shelter.
For the lonely it’s just a visit.
For the hungry it’s a meal
For one who stumbles
 it is helping hands.
 For the thirsty,
 just a drop

you ask
  little of us.  
You bless us,
when we give and
also when we receive.
Please let us have a cup of
cold water. And let us not ignore
those souls that thirst for you. Amen.


2 Kings 4:8-11, 14-16a

I know that Elisha is a holy man of God. Since he visits us often,
let us arrange a little room on the roof.

At times,
when prophets
 like Romero speak,
they lay down their lives.

If we are not ready to go that far,
to speak out loud and clear,
then give us the grace
to stand by them,
and learn

to speak quietly, each
in our own way,
for you.


Romans 6:3-4, 8-11

You too must think of yourselves as dead to sin
and living for God in Christ Jesus.

 “To live for God.”

what does it mean?

Are we to receive the prophet,
and at other times to
become one?

Will you help us offer a cup of cold water,
and let us receive one?

Be with us
every minute
of our lives.
