The doorbell that rings every morning…

Every morning, the doorbell rings and another need awaits us. There are certain times of the month when the needs seem to be more, and that is when many young mothers with their babies come to our door. Around this time of the year, when it gets so hot, many of our kids suffer with skin fungus and respiratory problems. They keep us and the Mother Angela Clinic busy. There is such a need for diapers, powdered milk, and baby clothes.

The difficult thing is that many of these mothers are so young, and they have babies to care for with no fathers to help. Some of them already have four or five children to feed and clothe. Some of their kids come to us for our activities. We try our best to share the mercy and love of God, to help them have self respect and to take control of their lives. Pray with us for these young mothers.

Blessed oil from St. Felix of Cantalice

Sister Inga shared with the kids the story of St. Felix and the day she visited Immaculate Conception Church in Rome where St. Felix is honored. On May 18, during her time in Rome for the General Chapter, she joined other sisters for the Mass celebrating the feast of St. Felix. People were anointed with blessed oil. After Mass, Sister Inga went to the sacristy and asked for oil to share with out kids in Haiti. Each child was blessed with holy oil and received a holy card of St. Felix.

We are family…

As we undertake this mission, many might wonder why we do what we do. Those who share this task will recognize us as family, and together our labor will rescue many from the power of death.
