Can someone explain this to me?
Father Joe was a n elderly priest in San Diego where Breen is based who ministered to the homeless right up to his very recent death. Apparently a lovely and beloved fellow.
Republicans would close homeless shelters. Socialism, they say.
It seems as if he knew what Jesus would do and did it.
Hate to say it, but he had to put up with a lot of NIMBY resistance. There are lots of otherwise-Christian people who gave public lip service while privately doing everything they could to resist, hoping they’d just go away and die someplace else.
Christians feeding the hungry? Housing the homeless? Where will it all end? Socialism? Communism? Why aren’t they fretting about abortion?/S
What a lovely tribute to a kind and generous man ♥♥
For the rest of the readers who, like me, want to know who Father Joe was:
Father Joe Carroll started and ran services for the homeless in San Diego. He fed thousands of people daily, provided shelter, a school for the kids, sports, including an entire gym, and education. He was a San Diego icon on TV and ran countless ads promoting his cause. He was a tireless hardworking Priest our City was lucky to have. He will be missed, but his legacy will live on in the huge downtown complex he built for the homeless.
