Proper attitude

  • Keep well for love of God and the poor
  • If you must suffer, make good use of it
  • A plague proved their charity
  • The strength to bear the fear of danger
  • Remain humble, keep going


  • Going out to find the Son of God in the sick
  • Charity+Mission (assist the sick both corporally and spiritually)
  • Sharing Faith and Hope with those who are sick
  • Bringing the Good News of Jesus to the dying
  • Accompanying those who have recovered

Taking Action

  • Our Lord wants to use you
  • Practice charity all the days of your life
  • Pay attention to others who are suffering and address their needs

Organization and Leadership
