There is a London Free Press story about Muslims donating to a Catholic charity to aid the needy this Christmas.
Written by Jennifer O’Brien, it tells of a local St. Vincent de Paul conference collecting food to help about 100 families this Christmas.
The president of St. John the Divine Catholic Church’s St. Vincent de Paul chapter, Moe Lacerte, asked a Muslim mosque if they would like to donate.
The Muslims were delighted to be asked and came up big. Students at the London Islamic School also donated.
Ali D. Chahbar, a member at London Muslim Mosque, helped with the food drive.
He had this to say about Christmas. “We are not Christians and don’t celebrate Christmas, but we are engulfed by the spirit and …any time there’s a jubilant, harmonious feeling, whatever creed it is under, we thrive on it.”
Let’s keep the jubilant harmonious feeling going and heal the world this Christmas and always.
