Daily Message

"To say that the work [of the Little Sisters] is public does not mean that it is impersonal or sterile. No, their acts of service are intimately personal. They are not a 'vending machine' dispensing impersonal charity – without convictions, conscience and a sense of right and wrong. No, they are providing intimately personal care – a care that we deeply desire for our family members and for all people in need. Their work is an expression of their love of God and God's love of others shining through their lives. We see light rising forth in the darkness and we like what we see."

– Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, USCCB President
