The Poor Box Speaks

  "I stand alone in the back of your church ready to greet you, yet many coldly pass me by. You look upon me as just a box of wood, but I have a heart - it is the heart of throbbing humanity. You do not know, will never know, what I accomplish for your unfortunately brethren. I am the antidote for pride; I am he who giveth with simplicity. I am humble and teach my followers to give for the love of God."

  "St. Paul said 'now there remain Faith, Hope Charity, these three, and the greatest of these is Charity'. I exemplify Charity. YOU can practice Charity though me."

  "I make possible the most powerful and the easiest prayer in the world; 'Amen I say to you that when you did it to these My brethren you did it unto Me'. I keep men from despair. I feed the hungry, clothe the naked. I bring a smile to the worried face, joy o the sad heart - BUT -

"without YOU I am helpless"

"I AM THE POOR BOX, PLEASE DO NOT PASS ME BY UNHEEDED"
