JESUS IN

THE LIFE OF
POOR

SUBMITTED BY: PATRICK DEGAMO &


JOSHUA OLAYRA
A. Jesus in the life of poor Jesus does not reveal himself cloaked in
worldly power and wealth but rather in weakness and poverty:
"though He was rich, yet for your sake he became poor …". Christ,
the eternal Son of God, one with the Father in power and glory, chose
to be poor; he came amongst us and drew near to each of us; he set
aside his glory and emptied himself so that he could be like us in all
things (cf. Phil 2:7; Heb 4:15). God’s becoming man is a great
mystery! But the reason for all this is his love, a love which is grace,
generosity, a desire to draw near, a love which does not hesitate to
offer itself in sacrifice for the beloved. Charity, love, is sharing with
the one we love in all things. Love makes us similar, it creates
equality, it breaks down walls and eliminates distances. God did this
with us. By making himself poor, Jesus did not seek poverty for its
own sake but, as Saint Paul says "that by his poverty you might
become rich". This is no mere play on words or a catch phrase.
Rather, it sums up God’s logic, the logic of love, the logic of the
incarnation and the cross. God did not let our salvation drop down
from heaven, like someone who gives alms from their abundance out
of a sense of altruism and piety. Christ’s love is different!

B. Interview We interview manong About on how he cope up


economically when it comes to his living even though he is struggling
or facing a lot of challenges. He said that “subong nga panahon
budlay na gid mangabuhi, kay grabi na mga standards subong.” In
short nowadays Philippines is slowly changing when it comes to
living that in that way, poor people cannot cope up with it. We also
ask manong about the attitude that he faced at every work that he
had. He said that there’s a many different kind of people with a
different kind of attitude. In that way he can’t really socialize and it
affects him at his own work because sometimes if he need help some
of his fellow workers don’t mind him at all. Lastly, we ask manong on
how he handles his work when it comes to his problems and
struggles. He answered us directly that there’s just one thing that he
does every single day. He just pray to God. He is always praying and
asking help to God thathe will overcome all of his problems and
struggles that he faces every single day and just wanted a better life.

C. Effects of their struggles The effects of their struggles in their life


is not so good. Sometimes they can’t eat because lacking of money.
Because the profit that they receive is not enough for them to buget,
they have children, families, electricity and all. It leads also to poverty.
Sometimes some of them will be unemployed, in that case where
would they get money to eat? To feed their kids or their families? Also
it leads to inability to afford housing. Some of them are unable to
afford housing, which puts them in danger of turning to the streets. It
can also lead them into death because they will be committing crime,
just to survive and maintain their family. And with such conditions,
people become desperate and practice drastic measures to provide
for themselves and their families. But even though they are facing
those problems they still do not forget God. Because, they all know
that God can provide them goods and can help them to rise up.

D. What is the role of the following in their struggles? Church- Church


have many different organisations and ways to help them in need,
Such as DMI stands for Daughters of Mary Immaculate and giving
scholarships. Sometimes church let the poor people stay in them. In
some of the simple community works that the church and
organisation do, it means a lot to them because we help them
unconditionally to get through their everyday needs and lives.
Government- The government has what you call 4ps Pantawid
Pamilyang Pilipino Program, also known as 4Ps and formerly Ahon
Pamilyang Pilipino, is a conditional cash transfer program of the
Philippine government under the Department of Social Welfare and
Development.. Less unfortunate would apply to 4ps in order to get an
incentives / money per month. In this way the government gives and
helps the in need. School- Less unfortunate people sometimes can’t
afford to pay for the education of their children, that is why we
Education in the Philippines is provided by public and private
schools, colleges, universities, and technical and vocational
institutions in the country. Funding for public education comes from
the national government. For the academic year 2017–2018, about
83% of K–12 students attended public schools and about 17% either
attended private schools or were home-schooled. have public school.
In this way children could study and learn even without paying for the
tuition. Sometimes school have a very helpful activities or it’s what
you called reach out. Students reaching out to the poor to help them
into their daily needs. Private sector- Given that development is
already a key interest of private sector organizations, it seems
reasonable to assume that the attention being given to the private
sector is justified. Going forward, then, it is important to understand
exactly what the role of the private sector in poverty alleviation should
be. The ways in which the private sector can benefit the lives of the
poor have been well documented. From creating jobs and enhancing
education to producing the goods and services used by those in
poverty, it is clear that the private sector is a part of many, if not all,
areas of development. As such, governments should be seeking to
foster a business environment through which the benefits of the
private sector can be harvested.

E. Personal learnings We learned that even though we are students


that can afford everything that we could, we should not waste
everything that we have. Because a lot of poor people out there
needing it. We need to value everything that we have. As a LaSallian
student, we should take action or give back our blessings to the poor.
We can make our own progrom to lend or hands to them and give
them tha needs that they need in their daily lives. By just reaching out
to them, it can help a lot. Let’s share our blessing to them. Spread the
Love.
