“Injure not the poor because they are poor, nor crush the needy at the gate; For the Lord will defend their cause, and will plunder the lives of those who plunder them.”
– Proverbs 22:22-23
The Lord will free those who have no one to help them.
He himself will come to save the poor.
Midafternoon reading and response from the Liturgy of the Hours, Tuesday, Week III.
Photo: Canopy of the grandfather oak. When we first moved to East Windsor in 1970, this was a fully mature oak, and there were no other trees even close to it. It is still standing strong these 48 years later.
