"The Son of God came into this world as a homeless person," says Pope Francis, "to show solidarity with every person." On Nov. 18, Vigil of the First World Day of the Poor, we follow our Eucharistic Lord into the streets of Hollywood. In His silent presence we humble ourselves to see His Face in those living on the streets. Following Jesus, we accept our own inner homelessness to show our solidarity with those who are homeless .
Join us on Nov 18th 2017, at Blessed Sacrament Church in Los Angeles.
#andIamStillBeloved, Humble Ourselves
