No Place to Go

“What’s hardest for us is that we can’t engage them (soup kitchen guests) in conversation and ask how they are,” explained Sister Mary Miller in an article that appeared in the Erie Times-News on the plight of the homeless during the pandemic. She explained that instead of the usual daily sit-down dinner, Emmaus is now packing hot meals and distributing them at the door. “We provide food for the body and care for the soul, but right now, other than our prayers for them, there’s no way to engage in conversation…and express that kind of care and concern for them.”
