The Maronite Servants of Christ the Light have been facilitating and conducting weekly Bible sharing for the people that visit the Food Pantry at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in New Bedford, MA. We were invited by the pastor, Fr. Edward Murphy to facilitate the sharing every Thursday. The participants are not only fed physically, but spiritually as well. The sharing is focused on the daily Gospel readings, which have been from the Gospel of St. John during the Easter season.
The scripture is proclaimed and the participants are given time to think about how it applies to their lives through a guided meditation led by Sr. Therese Maria and then opened for sharing. Our opportunity to serve in this spiritual work of mercy has been a blessing. Their sharing has been a source of hope and encouragement to all those present. Please keep this work of mercy and those who attend in your prayers.
