“Jesus wants us to touch human misery, to touch the suffering flesh of others. He hopes that we will stop looking for those personal or communal niches which shelter us from the maelstrom of human misfortune and instead enter into the reality of other people’s lives and know the power of tenderness. Whenever we do so, our lives become wonderfully complicated and we experience intensely what it is to be a people, to be part of a people.”
Pope Francis
Evangelii Gaudium, 270
SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Once we recognize the presence of Christ in our midst, we cannot help but respond in love to those who make up his suffering Body here within the St. Ambrose community and beyond. This includes those who are poor, sick, marginalized, frail, broken, persecuted and in special need. Working together, we can offer them our friendship, care, solidarity and attention to justice and peace.

Prayer for those who suffer

Dearest Lord, may I see you today and every day in the person of your sick, and, while nursing them, minister to you. Though you hide yourself behind the unattractive disguise of the irritable, the exacting, the unreasonable, may I still recognize you and say: 'Jesus, my patient, how sweet it is to serve you'. Amen.

-Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
