“Serve the sick with such a love, as you would serve Jesus Christ himself: try to save not only the bodies but also their souls.”

Blessed Edmund Bojanowski, the Founder of Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception

 

 

Pope Francis declared in his World Day of the Sick speech that we must remember in our prayers, those receiving care, those giving care and those who have yet to receive needed care.

When I think of a safe haven for those who are in need of care, especially people who are ill, I think of the saying “Men Build Houses But Women Make Them HOMES”. It is not the structure of a building that makes it a home, it is the spirit and energy from dedicated people within that structure, that brings the warmth and love to those who reside there.

 

Guided by the words of their founder, Blessed Edmund, the Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception promise a life dedicated to the care of the sick and elderly filled with compassion, gentleness, love and respect. They care for their residents souls as well as their bodies. They bring a spirit of communication between resident and God in all that they do … Nursing, teaching, praying and loving. How blessed are we, who know the Sisters and Saint Joseph’s Home, to have them in our lives.

 

 

Respect for the elderly always gives me particular satisfaction.”

Blessed Edmund Bojanowski, the Founder of Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception

 

With these thoughts in mind I offer prayers of gratitude to the Little Servant Sisters of Saint Joseph’s Senior Home and ask that you too dear reader remember how special they are.

Let us all ask God’s blessing upon the Sisters and their work. Upon those who are ill and receiving care and especially for those who need care but find it unavailable. May God help us find a way to bring that care to those in need. One day it could be ourselves!
