God of mercy, you sent your Only Begotten Son to preach the Gospel to the poor. Continue to inspire your people with a love for all those in need; bless the work of those who serve those in want; and grant relief to those who suffer from lack of food, shelter, or clothing. Through Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
