A few years ago at Sunday Mass, a visiting priest gave a nice sermon on giving. He said he sponsored 22 Children out of his own pocket (at about 30 bucks a month each). He had a large pile of folders, with pictures and history of the needy Children. After Mass he asked the congregation if they would like to sponsor a Child and he spread the folders across about 30 feet in front of the Alter. The wife went up and took three folders and all the rest of the folders were gone in about 15 minutes. We're received many heartwarming stories from the Children. It's amazing how a blanket, mattress, clothing, school supplies, etc. or seeds for their Father has benefited their lives.
