St. Basil the Great

 When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry; the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor.”St. Basil

Tonight in New Jersey the snow has begun to fall. The temperature is dropping quickly. By this time tomorrow we will have temperatures nearing or slightly below 0*F. This is quite unusual for New Jersey. 

There are many of God's children sleeping outside in the cold. Pray for them - pray that they seek and find shelter.
