LIFE OF PRAYER
The driving force
of the life of a Little Sister of the Poor is her deep intimacy with God in prayer. Our life as a Little Sister of the Poor may seem to be very active at the service of the Elderly Poor but the source of our energy come from our life of prayer. We find in the person of the poor the Lord whom we adore in prayer. All our actions derive from the source of our intense prayer life.
LIFE AT THE SERVICE OF THE ELDERLY
OUR LIFE IN COMMUNITY
“A community of Little Sisters, living in complementarity and unity, gives unassuming witness of the unselfish and joyous charity of Christ’s disciples.”
Our Community life is modelled after the example of the Holy Family according to the desire of Saint Jeanne Jugan. “See how Jesus, Mary and Joseph loved one another, all three how happy they looked, with what kindness and gentleness they spoke to each other. In our little family it must be the same.” (Jeanne Jugan)
From our community life flows great apostolic energy and it is a strong bond for the community by which all the Little Sisters come to share the same sentiments, in humility, peace and love for God.
Community life is an essential part of our religious life. Each one of us is called by Christ for a same mission and we work together to fulfil our aspect of hospitality. We pray together, we take meals together, work together and live together in a community, united in the love of Christ who has gathered us together in a community as a family.
