Saint of the day - Jeanne Jugan
Readings for today’s Mass
Other women started noticing what they were doing and joined them in welcoming guests into their home. As more women came to her, she opened other house of hospitality, welcoming the poor and elderly. Eventually, all the women would become the Little Sisters of the Poor and receive formal recognition as an Order from Pope Francis.
All these things factor into the life of Jeanne Jugan. I present her this way because saints can often seem distant and far removed from our lives. But when we hear her story in a familiar setting, her life becomes more real. And i dare say i know people in town whose story sounds like Jeanne's. Tho her life was far different from the great scholar Augustine of two days ago, what she did was no less recognized as the ideals of Christian living. Keep today's saint in mind when you think about volunteering at the Salvation Army or the Warming Center, or when you visit the Catholic Worker or the Hospitality House. Who knows, a Jeanne Jugan might be right there next to you.
