Jamaica Missionaries of the Poor
  • My expectation was to see a center of sadness
    where loneliness dwelled and hope was
    extinguished. However, I saw happiness and love
    in the faces of the Brothers and in the smiles of
    the residents.

  • Before mass today I was able to sit with a
    little girl who was blind and autistic. One of
    the Brothers showed me how to sit with her and
    calm her by singing. I was truly amazed how he
    knew each child so well and how he had such love
    for every person he cared for.
