Students desiring to serve their brothers and sisters in the concrete jungle of their own nation should consider the New York mission trip. Mother Teresa referred to the poverty found in western countries as more difficult to remedy, “spiritual poverty”, where the poor experience “profound loneliness . . . of being unwanted, unloved, uncared for” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s Speech to the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, DC, February 3, 1994). After encountering Jesus in the Mass, students join the sisters in the many apostolates throughout the Bronx and Harlem. Whether in the soup kitchen, the homeless shelter, catechism classes, or out on the street runs, the missionaries encounter Jesus in each of the poor they serve.
