Joy of Serving
“The Little Sisters of the Poor welcome into their Homes for the Aged the elderly poor, irrespective of caste, creed and community and care for them until their death with the same spirit of religion that they would have in serving Jesus Christ himself, for it is He in truth whom they receive and assist in the Person of the Poor, as He expressly taught in the Gospel: ‘I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.’”:
To alleviate their physical and mental sufferings and to fulfill the deepest longings of the elderly Poor who are under our care thus witnessing the compassionate love of the Heart of Jesus Christ by :
- Recognizing their dignity, their desire of being respected, esteemed and loved, and their longing to feel themselves useful;
- Understanding their apprehension of solitude, together with their wish for a certain independence and privacy:
- Responding to their need for security, in health as in sickness, until death.
