Last Tuesday we followed the advice of Bishop Palma to go to an outlying island north of Cebu. We were not familiar with this remote area neither was the driver. Riz asked her colleague Cam to lead our way because she was borne there and her parents and siblings were living in the northern part of the island. At the end of that day, we went back to the city of Cebu after finishing our mission to bring goods and food to the people of Santa Fe and Bantayan. Cam was so touched that we brought these supplies to the parish of her village. We were happy that we were able to help Riz’s friends in need. This is fraternity.
Guess what? This weekend Riz bought supplies to send to the north again. But look! Cam stood by Riz and became part of the team to help out. Wow, more and more friends joined their effort to stretch their love to the needy. Wow, what a beautiful spirit. It’s the spirit of St. Egidio Community.
Cam felt beloved last Tuesday whereas she showed the love to the needy this weekend. The beloved and love becomes one.
