Feast Day of St. Maria Josefa Sancho de Guerra
St. Maria Josefa Sancho de Guerra founded the Institute of the Servants of Jesus in 1871. This institution was an aid to the sick in hospitals and in their homes, the elderly, children and the homeless. Today, as we seek her intercession, let us reflect on one of her quotes:
“Don’t believe sisters that the assistance consists only in giving medicines and food to the sick. There is another type of assistance that must never be forgotten and it is the assistance of the heart that adjusts and enter in sympathy with the person who suffers and go to meet his necessities.”
St. Maria Josefa Sancho, pray for us to proceed with our hearts in any assistance we give to others.
