I have never felt as close with Jesus Christ as I have these past two weeks! I have experienced the life style of The Little Sisters of the Poor and Residents. The most important thing that I learned is how to pray in a way that I have never prayed before! Through my volunteer work I made new relationships with staff and Residents that allowed me to grow in my relationship with Christ.
I learned the selfless acts of St. Jeanne Jugan and how they led to the founding of The Little Sisters of The Poor. I learned I could live without my possessions. My “things” were not as important or meaningful as the work I was doing. I thought less about myself and more of what God’s plans are for me. How can I be of service to him?
