This second week of Advent, we reflect on Mary and Joseph looking for a place to give birth to Jesus after being turned away at the Inn. As many know, they soon find shelter: a humble stable where something great will soon happen.

This week Fr. Bill McIntyre, OFM reflects on the humble work being done by The Franciscan Friars and volunteers at St. Peter Claver Food Pantry in Macon, Georgia.

Although much like the stable, this pantry is small and can use improvements- the Friars and volunteers find a way to make something great happen each week by feeding and caring for many families, children and elderly people in the neighborhood.

Please enjoy this reflection as we celebrate the second week of Advent. For it is in your name and only with your generosity that the Franciscan Friars can continue to provide basic necessities of food, clothing, shelter and medical assistance to over 2 million men, women and children each year at our various ministry locations like St. Peter Claver Food Pantry. 
God Bless,
