Anne DeSantis- Love and Care for the Marginalized
“Love and Care for the Marginalized” is a 40-day meditational for Catholics based on reflections from popes, saints, religious leaders, movie quotes, and others on how God speaks to each of us about the importance of making outreach to those who have been hurt, rejected, and marginalized. Whether you are on the giving or receiving end, we have all experienced the world’s treatment of those who are uncared for and unloved. Each meditation included a quote, reflection, a prayer, and a call to action. The book is based on the command of Christ in the book of Matthew 25 where Jesus talks about the importance of loving and caring for those in greatest need and acting on their behalf. This short book will help the reader to reflect upon the importance of making a difference for those who are alone, rejected and forgotten. The book was born out of much reflection, thought and most of all prayer. Learn more about the life and ministry of the author Anne DeSantis at AnneDeSantis.com.
