The Little Sisters have been and are the witnesses of the emptiness that often afflicts the old. They have been chosen to fill that emptiness with warmth and human affection. They have been chosen by God to reaffirm the sacredness of human life and to underline the truth that man is a child of God and can never be regarded only as a tool of cold utilitarianism - Pope Paul VI.

The life of Saint Teresa of Jesus Jornet Ibars shows us that one person can make a difference, as well as many other things. The fact that she had fifty houses, all caring for the sick at the time of her death, was all made possible because she said “yes” to Jesus. She had a desire to help the poor and abandoned, and helped them one by one, by taking them to her aunt’s house. This little act of compassion would grow into a Congregation of fifty houses in her life’s time. If we call upon her intercession, we can get her help, and we can make a difference in the lives of others as well. We are all called to be saints, let’s not miss our opportunity. (Newman Ministry)
