Sr. Emmanuel Maria prayerfully reflects on the commitment she’s made to our Lord who chose and
called her to give her life for the elderly poor.
On December 8 the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It marks the day when Mary, from the moment of her conception, was chosen by God to be the Mother of His Son. For each Little Sister she is the model of consecrated life.
St. Jeanne Jugan, Foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, and her early companions professed their vows of consecrated life on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Today in every Home around the world Little Sisters continue the tradition by renewing their vows of chastity, poverty, obedience, and hospitality, and their commitment to give their life to the elderly poor.
