Friends in Prison

The poor frequently end up in prison. They are people in condition of social and economic need, “on the street” or with serious personal difficulties. They are immigrants, drug addicts, alcoholics, AIDS victims. Sant’Egidio has developed a friendship with these brothers and sisters for more than thirty years now.

I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger and you took me in, naked and you dressed me, sick and you visited me, imprisoned and you came to visit me.

(Matt 25,35-36).
