OperationChristmasChild2December 15, 2013 – In world unity and shared humanity, let us bless, pray and think positively for the good of all children and youth. As many of us celebrate religious and national holidays, may we remember the children and youth in need. Many are forgotten – alone on the streets – no food – no warmth – nowhere to lay their head – no loving family. They have no hope of gifts and the joy of celebration. Also remember the children of the Philippines, world refugees, those in slavery, those in forced prostitution…..Yes, many of us give personal time and finances to help young people. Yet as we celebrate and give thanks, may we cherish them in our hearts and give them hope. Lastly may we include Pope Francis’ December 2013 intention,  “That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need.”
