Here in New York City we pass homeless men, women and children begging every day and we wonder when and how to help.
Pope Francis makes it easy:
The bottom line, he says, is to treat everyone – homeless or housed, poor or rich, able or disabled – with equal compassion and equal dignity.
When is it best to help homeless people begging on the streets?
How should we help?
With compassion and dignity looking them in the eyes and touching their hands.
