A beggar and a man of god.

In the staggering heat of today (90+ degrees F.), two people are overdressed for the weather.  One is a beggar and the other a Franciscan monk.

As I watched this encounter take place between the two of them, I wondered: will the man of god give money to the beggar?  Or, is he as poor as she?

He did not give her money, but I caught the encouragement and gentleness he shared with her.  A passing moment of beauty.

And P.S., neither of them seem bothered by today’s heat. :-))
