During Christmas time the little sisters of Warsaw, Poland, went out to meet the homeless and street people. They tell us here about their experience and what they received from these encounters: From lsr Violetta:   As for organizing this "Christmas Message", we let our hearts be our guides.  We wanted simply to share the Peace and Joy brought by this God who descended to our earth as a little tiny infant, poor and powerless. This little child, full of trust, stretches out his hands to us and, smiling, invites us to take hold of him.  
“Would you like to go to Damascus this year?  Yes, of course!!!”  And it was with great enthusiasm that I left Lebanon for Damascus with my sisters Jeanne d’Arc and Mariam Nour.  It was with joy that I returned to this neighborhood and our parish and friends as I had spent my second year of postulancy there.
In Poland we have a community in MACHNOW, a little town of 170 inhabitants, where the people are poor and forgotten by everyone.  Here is what the little sisters there did to share the joy of Christmas.

Little sister Marie Jacqueline celebrated her 70 years of religious life in Mallemort, France.  Here is what she had to say about answering the call to follow the Lord in a “nomadic life.” “My religious vocation began with my falling madly in love with the Lord!  I was about to turn 20.  I am 93 now and celebrating my 70 years of Profession as a Little Sister of Jesus. Falling in love can’t be explained, it just happens.  By this falling in love I understood that God would be first in my life.  But where?  And how?
