I personally am most unworthy. But I brought a girl child from the street and I could see in the face of the child that the child was hungry. God knows how many days that she had not eaten. So I gave her a piece of bread and the little one started eating the bread crumb by crumb. I said to the child, ‘Eat the bread. Eat the bread.’

She looked at me and said, ‘I am afraid to eat the bread, because I am afraid when it is finished, I will be hungry again.’ This is a reality. Maybe we are not hungry for a piece of bread but maybe there is somebody there in the family who is unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten. There is Love. Love begins at home. A Love to be true has to hurt. This is what I bring before you. To love one another with great Love.
