I have a friend who was always helping the transients, giving them aid, finding little jobs for them, etc. On one occasion he was stabbed in the chest, penetrating the lung. A few years later, he had put a misguided soul up at his mountain retreat (that had been laboriously built by hand, as all materials were hand carried the last few hundred feet up the mountain) only to have it burned down in an “accident”. He blamed himself for having too much flammable material on hand...
I try to learn from the mistakes of others, and I intend to steer clear of transients and beggars, or at least keep my guard up if I momentarily decide to give some aid.
I don’t know why you’re using a sarcasm tag there.
Sadly, it actually happened on another forum when we were asking for prayers for the priest and his community.
good to help those in need...
Yes it is, both a privilege and responsibility. However, I do not have to do so face to face and put myself or family at risk. Knowing the situation can help direct contact be safe, but giving through organized charities- finding one that actually is legitimate with none or a minimal amount of funds going towards”administrative expenses”—but going to the stated reason given, is often if not usually a better way.
He sounds like a terribly brave and good man.
you are right. should have left it off.
I used to go to mass at the Dom when I was stationed there. I wonder if he was a priest there in the early 1990s?
