Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Donald E. Messer


"In exploring the subject of global hunger, the time has come to listen to our hearts and hear what God is calling us to do in mission and ministry. Our heads are full of hunger statistics and stories, programs and politics, ideas and ideologies. Lest we be beset by paralysis of analysis, each of us must look inward in reflection, prayer, and meditation and see where the cry of the hungry has become the voice of God for us.  — Theologian Donald E. Messer in "Ending Hunger Now"

Young people in rural areas of Mexico—like San Miguel Huautla—often choose to immigrate to the United States and work for a few years because there are few opportunities at home.
