The University of Dallas just completed an alternative spring break at A Simple House KC! They cooked an enormous amount of food.
Their massive cooking project was a great work of charity. They were able to deliver food to poor families, shut-ins, and the homeless. They also served lunch at an inner-city senior center.
This mixing bowl should give some scale!
In addition to feeding the poor, they worked on a house, visited the Little Sisters of the Lamb, served at a food pantry, delivered food to the homeless with the Franciscan Sisters, served at one homeless soup kitchen, and ate in solidarity at another homeless soup kitchen. They did all of this while roughing it at A Simple House.
Thank you UD, and please come back next year!
Special thanks to Br. Josephen Quinlan Cap. and Prof. Salvatore of Benedictine college.
The primary point of Christianity is not: 1) to teach us how to live in a perfect world, or 2) to teach us how to perfect the world.
The primary point of Christianity is to teach us how to be full of life while living in an imperfect world.
The perfection of the world will happen by people embracing this point, and Christians miss this point when they complain about the world or try to retreat into a closed environment. The fullness of life comes from faith, hope, and love. The Church does not teach faith, hope, and love via doctrines. The Church facilitates a relationship with a loving Father, and these gifts are consequences of that relationship.
