[Rooster, rooster]

Rooster, rooster,
golden coxcomb
wait not for the sun to rise.
Crow for Peter
through the darkness,
pity him who thrice denied.
 
Rooster, rooster,
Peter’s broken.
Darkness shrouds all earthly scapes.
Time to crow, for
even Peter
may just yet be saved by shame.

Jesus asks us to be generous with the poor. It’s one of the foundations of his public ministry: caring for the poor himself and asking his disciples to do so.

Obedience is a way of following God and when the young Mary assented to God's plan with her "Yes" at the Annunciation, she gave us an example to follow: her obedience came from trust. Can we do the same with our faith?
Even in our relationships with family and friends, forgiveness can be hard to come by.
