Alabama Mission Band: A History of the Social Services of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity in North Alabama, 1937 – 1957
Background of the Study. Our Lord traveled daily through the urban and rural areas of Palestine, seeking the sick and the poor and administering to their needs. He dealt with the afflicted, the hungry, the distressed in a direct, simple, immediate way. He went about doing good. When the disciples of John came to Jesus asking, Who art Thou?”, He dispatched them with the message, "Go tell John what you have seen and heard, the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead rise and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Jesus Christ identified Himself with works of mercy and love. By work, and especially by example, Our Lord taught that charity must permeate all our attempts to help our neighbor. He gave charity as the fundamental qualification of association with Himself: "By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one for another. And He commanded charity in our relationships with one another: "This is My Commandment that you love one another as I have loved you."
