I give thanks to God for his unconditional love.

Just recently, while at St. Michael's, a receptionist called me over to hear this story: "Sister, this man remembers when he got a sandwich when he needed it. He doesn't need a sandwich now, but he hasn't forgotten the love and care he received from your group at Inner City Health."

Those in need of care

Another time I met a man about to be discharged from St. Michael's to the Salvation Army Hostel on Sherbourne Street. I went to visit him and found him in need of more care than was available there. I called Matt Talbot asking for help, and they even sent a taxi for him. He was exceedingly grateful to have a warm and caring home.

Women find companionship

Recently I have been teaching sewing and crafts at Fontbonne Ministries. The women find companionship, a sense of community and gain confidence in their own abilities. Some make their own clothes now, while others have progressed to being able to get a job. They are grateful for the time we have together, as well as what they learn, and so am I. I give thanks to God for his unconditional love for the last 50 years as I celebrate my golden jubilee.
