Week 12, Exercise Two: Jesus Teaches Me to Love the Poor and Outcast

This exercise should be experienced between March 8 and March 10.

Pray with Matthew 25: 31-46, The Judgment of Nations.

As always, use your imagination to enter into the parable. Can you see the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the ill, and the imprisoned? What does your heart tell you?

Can you see Christ in the suffering? Is Christ calling you in and through the suffering?

In your heart, let your colloquy be with the poor and suffering. If it helps, recall a scene of poverty and suffering from the media. What do the poor and suffering want? What can we do for them?

Now, converse with Jesus. Listen to Jesus. What does he tell you?
