Snow

December 20, 2012

She extends her hands to the poor, yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow, for all her household is clothed in scarlet” (Prov. 31: 20-21).

Father, You gave us a description of the Virtuous Woman that we might emulate her. You care for the woman on the street corner with an empty cup. You care for the man living in a cardboard shack.

May we, too, remember the poor and homeless, especially during the winter months.

We have been given such an abundance of riches – warm beds, a roof over our heads, loved ones to care for us. The woman with a cup and the man in a shack are part of Your household, after all. They should be part of ours.

It was only through the death and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus, we were washed white as snow. Help us to share what we have with those less fortunate; help us to share His love whatever the season.

Amen
