Reprehending the Weak

The Spiritual Works of Mercy are acts of love in ways we help our neighbors with needs for their soul. By admonishing the sinner we try to keep one from sinning or the occasion of sin. At times a person might resent direct correction so we show, by our example, that we do not approve of such behavior.

Some of my summers were spent working on projects trying to obtain equal rights for Minority Groups in Cleveland, Ohio and in Baltimore, Maryland working on =”Project Bridge”. In Montevideo, Minnesota, I worked with=”Migrant Workers”. A unique experience was working with the = “Navajo Indians”. I worked with Adults and Children trying to revive their Catholic Faith. I went to the Reservation, daily, visiting the Hogans {the Navajo Indian Hut}. They were kind and listened as I spoke to them.

I had the experience of working in a Maximum Security Prison for Women. While there, I worked in several capacities. As a guard, while the women were allowed out of their cell, I was able to speak to some of them individually. Some of my time was spent doing office work. I, also, worked in the Children’s Center.

I became the Catechetical Administrator of St. Anthony Parish in Monongahela, PA in 2004-2010, working with teachers and students in Kindergarten to Grade 9. To help Parents and Parishioners “Put God First” I started an Adult CCD Program which ran, simultaneously, with the regular CCD Classes.

At present I am teaching CCD at St. Michael Parish in Elizabeth, PA. I try to instill in the minds of the students what our Lord said, “As long as you did it for one of these, the least of My brethren, you did it to Me.” {Matthew 25:40} Children, at times, can be mean to each other. I try to get them to forgive and get beyond the hurt. After understanding, on their level, most children do not hold grudges!
