Visiting the Sick

Manila – As an act of Christian charity during this Jubilee of Mercy, the staff, seminarians, volunteers and confreres visited our brothers and sisters with Hansen’s disease at Tala, North Caloocan on March 21st. About 90 patients are staying in four wards of a hospital there. We spent time listening to their stories and praying with them. We also brought a meal and some personal care items. Many spiritual insights were gained in listening to their stories and visiting them. It is our fond wish that more people could visit these Hansen’s patients in Tala and bring them needed hope and light to their lives.
