“The New Roman Missal among people surviving poverty”, on Pray Tell

“We also discussed the word, “roof.” One more time before receiving communion we say we are unworthy. Then we invite God under our roof. This is a very difficult phrase for people who do not have a roof under which they live. They do not have the opportunity to be hospitable. They cannot invite people around a table or share a meal or stay dry or to pray under a roof. This phrase has really been a new moment for me and for many people to pray just before communion among people who live outside. This word is still being talked about in our community and evokes much prayer and thought.”
