Being the eminent members of our Congregation, our elderly and sick sisters continue to take part in its life and in its mission. Through their prayer and the offering of their sufferings, they support the apostolic service of their sisters. The aged and sick sisters are a blessing for our religious family. They are among us the presence of suffering Christ. That is why we surround them with our attentive love. They themselves will consider their apparent passivity as an active participation in the redemptive work of Christ, who was nailed to the cross and suffered in order to redeem the human beings.
