Heavenly father, I am your humble servant, I come before you today in need of hope for Maria. There are times when she went downhill. I pray that she never gives up for what she believes in. Give her hope for a better future. For a better life. For love and kindness. She's had a rough life and she'll need you more than ever. Help her strive for her goals because she deserves it. Through all these difficulties in her life she has made it. Continue to help her make a difference in the world. I ask of you Lord to help Maria become the person she's meant to be. Amen.
Sincerely, Tiani

The theme of the Catholic Social Teaching for this week is “Option for the Poor”.  This means that there is always an option to help the poor and care for the needy. We have to follow Jesus and he reminds us of our Christian duty to give a voice to those who are unheard and to help those who are most vulnerable.  The CRS always goes on missions to help the poor and other people in need.  We can all be missionaries and help our world’s sick, hungry, thirsty, and all needy people.  We all should make the next generation of our world a better place.

As being a more fortunate kid, sometimes I forget to think about the less fortunate. I have the right to a great education, and I have the responsibility to do well in school. Another really important right is eating food every day, and I have a responsibility to feed those who don’t have food. To give to the thirsty, to shelter the homeless. A lot of people are not as privileged as I am, so I have a responsibility to help those in need. I do community service and donate as much as possible. They need all the help they can get, no matter if it's just a penny a day.

Hi my name is Summer and I’m in the 7th grade.  I think that Hongkham’s story made an impact on my life by teaching me to appreciate what I have. When I watched her video I saw how she was so thankful for a portion of food that she could take home to her family. Usually I eat rice every night and I think that everybody can get it but now I am MUCH more appreciative of what I have.

I also think that crs is doing a really great thing by helping people that need help with food and other great things. I thought that it was so nice of them to help parents out by letting them make school lunch for kids and then letting them take some home. I also found out that most families there don’t have rice because it’s too expensive but crs gives them some to take home.

In conclusion I have learned so much more from just this one amazing story. I plan to appreciate everything I get and have. I look forward to reading the next story of hope in the following week. Thank you so much for sharing your story Hongkham.

The Catholic Social Teaching of this week is to care for God’s creation.  We know that God created everything in this world like plants, animals, and every mountaintop. And he said these things were good.  In these things, we find God and we must take care of what he created, both for ourselves and for the human family. We all have to love and take care of God’s creation, not destroy it like some bad people try to do.  We must respect everything that God created and care for it because we are all human and God counts on us to take care of his creations.
