Pope in Santa Marta: do we care about the hungry, thirsty, the drug addict, the prisoner?

In his daily homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis reflected on Cain and Abel. He asked everyone the question God asked Cain after he had murdered Abel: “Where is your brother?”  

“The sick, the hungry, the thirsty, the one without clothes, the little one who cannot go to school, the drug addict, the prisoner. Where is he? Where is your brother in your heart? Is there room for these people in our hearts?”

The pope invited all Christians to put a name to the list of those mentioned in his homily. He stressed the need for Christians not to hide from God; but to answer joyfully and faithfully the questions He asks everyone “about our brothers.”
