“I told myself charity must not consist in feelings but in works; then I set myself for doing for the other what I would do for the person I loved the most.” – St. Therese of Lisieux
My name is Claire Miller and I am studying at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, finishing my last year this fall! I have had a deep and personal encounter with Christ in the past years of my life and this has stirred me to strive to give him everything. Source of All Hope has been one way the Lord has presented an opportunity to serve him and to strive to meet his thirst for us which he expresses to us on the cross. The Lord has blessed me in countless ways in my life and all I can do is to receive his gifts with open hands and to give these gifts back to him. In my mission this summer, I will have the opportunity to share this love and encounter with Christ I have witnessed with the men and women I meet on the streets of Baltimore, as well as the men and women in our community.
This ministry is truly relational and there are a lot of things we cannot fix for our friends on the streets, but Source of All Hope is serving the deepest desire and need of these men and women’s hearts and my own heart. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and all that Source of All Hope has already done for me. I am excited to dive deeper into my own relationship with Christ and to bring others into it! I ask that you support me and the other missionaries in our efforts to encounter the other where they are at and share the love that Christ has for them. Please keep us and the mission in your prayers! God bless!
Pursuing my calling as a missionary is only possible through the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. Your investment in this mission enables our community to go out and share life with our friends on the street day after day, where we address their biggest source of suffering—isolation—in a way that nobody else can. Your support enables our program to grow, and we intend to have a community of 15-20 missionaries by August 15, 2022. These young, determined men and women will be nourished and equipped through daily opportunities for spiritual, intellectual, and human formation, and they will spend time in prayer before Christ in the Eucharist, interceding for the needs of this suffering city. Your support makes all the difference, and I want to invite you to invest in both me and my community. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will happily schedule a time to meet! You can email me at ________.
