Sweeping dirty slum streets and washing tiny bodies are just a few ways the compassionate women missionaries serve. Conversations flow and hearts are opened as they talk with women in the villages. The ones tending the wounds of leprosy patients, feeding the poor and helping victims of natural catastrophes—these are the Sisters of Compassion.
These women, clothed in white and gray servant dresses, show the heart of Christ as they serve children, women, the downcast and the needy—those others have forgotten. Deep love transcends all the lowliness they face every day. The sisters pave the way for many, by living as Jesus's hands and feet.
This month we remember and stand behind our Sisters of Compassion in prayer. As they faithfully serve the Lord Jesus by doing what most would call "unpleasant tasks", they are displaying the love of Jesus in touchable ways. Let us pray with passion for this ministry as God equips these precious women to sow His unfailing love deep into the hearts of everyone they serve.
