whispered love
sisters of charity




Tonight I am reading 'Love until it hurts' by Daphne Rae, about the Sisters of Charity in Kolkata.

I bought it years and years ago, and I totally identify with their work, even though I know I am so weak, even though I know their work has sometimes been criticised. They inspire me. I see so much of my God in action in their work.

There are people like that, giving themselves in service, all over the world. My own daughter does it, working with the poor and sick in Africa.

Even so, in the same way, Jesus went out, his heart went out, to the poor and the sick, and he said 'Come unto me.'
