Sri Lanka: Celebrating with the Disabled and the Elderly

Salvatorians in Sri Lanka decided to put the spirit of the Salvatorian Missionary Year into practice by spending time with people who are in need of love, care and fellowship.

They chose to assist one day at a center of the Missionary Sisters of Charity, where disabled and elderly people are cared for.

Fr. J. Jesurajan (Theeban) Lambert SDS recounts:  “When we arrived there, first we helped them with their assistants to arrange and bring all the patients at the meeting area. Then we entertained them with our singing. As we practiced, we sang in different languages:  English, German and Tamil. When our students sung in our local language Tamil, all from young to old begun to clap their hands and played their own instruments with great joy. After the singing we assisted to arrange the lunch for them. When we all had our lunch, we had an opportunity to listen and see the very words of Mother Theresa. She had said:  ‘It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give but how much love we put in the giving.’ At the end we thanked each other and returned home. It was a wonderful and memorable experience for all of us, of Christ’s loving presence among us as we served each other.”

Founder's Thoughts

As long as there is one person on earth who does not know God and does not love God above all things, you dare not allow yourself a moment’s rest.
