During the course of an email converation i was having with an internet *friend* I recently made, i was asked the following question which you will read in the email.
Now the guy is a fellow Catholic who is enduring etensive hardship but as much as i’d like to help him i feel utterly unable to assist him as i have no knowledge of these matters, of which he writes. Does anyone reading this have information that i could send to this poor man?
Here’s the email:

” Mat 25:37-40 ” Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink ?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison,and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

Jesus said in Luke 10:36 – 37 which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves?
And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Pro 3:27 – 28 withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
Cripes, i feel so powerless to offer this man anything more than my prayers. Please, even if you can’t offer any advice, please remember him in your prayers too.
