Stories of Kindness from Around the World

What if Jesus were Homeless?


--by mindyjourney, posted Mar 21, 2019
Near the front entrance of San Antonio’s St. Mary’s Church is a sculpture of the “homeless Jesus,” lying on park bench. His wounded feet stick out of the thin tattered blanket covering Him.

It touched me so, especially with the homeless scattered about the area, clearly discouraged from entering the Riverwalk, but free to roam the downtown, asking for alms.

So, that night, I assembled a meal from the items for sale at the convenience store. Made and colored a card to include...so glad  coloring/craft supplies travel with me!

Before we left the hotel for the next portion of our journey, I placed the bag of food onto the sculpture bench, at the feet of “homeless Jesus,” along with my prayers.

When we drove out of the parking garage a few minutes later, noticed that the bag was already gone.

🙏 Bless those who are homeless, poor and hungry. May they have shelter and enough to ease their wants. Grant them Peace and comfort. For in the least of us, is our own Divinity.
