To pray without ceasing
Years ago, I was happy to receive an invitation from the Little Sisters to join the Association Jeanne Jugan. At the Home for the Aged, there is a palpable atmosphere of tranquility, peace and the relaxed camaraderie of “helping hands”. Through the concerted effort of the Little Sisters and the Staff, our Elderly friends readily engage with each other in community. It is amazing, considering it’s not easy to spend one’s senior years with people you don’t know.
Through frequent visits to our Elderly friends, we see them being happy, and we learn from their faith to pray without ceasing, to participate more in the liturgy, to come closer to God, and to depend and rely on God in life, all of which are truly indispensable gifts.
