Buckeye Back Road Tour cont: I gave a talk to a prayer group at Sacred Heart Church in Fremont, Ohio, last night. Part of the focus was about getting more help to people in the Third World. Afterward, Sr. Anthony Maria Valdez (“Sister Sam”) told me about an absolutely excellent local example of this. She is the Director of Spiritual Care at the St. Francis Health Center in nearby Green Springs, Ohio. People in a ward there for extreme brain trauma started a fundraising drive for the impoverished, small village of Lufu, Tanzania. Sister Sam said the St. Francis Health Center patients started donating, like, “25 cents” — all some had — and synergy (read: the “loaves and fishes”) started happening. Next the staff started kicking in, then others… and by the end of the year they had raised: $1,000. This money, in turn, paid for a village well to provide clean drinking water and for beds for a health clinic in Lufu. Note: We could end world poverty with a clear vision, 25 cents — and God.
