The love of Christ impels us
to see Jesus particularly present
in the sick, weak, elderly, and lonely;
and to provide by our training
and our treasure a healing of their sufferings
and restored hope and peace to each person.
That in all things God may be Glorified.
|Concern for the total healing of persons was Christ's greatest desire. His commission to the disciples comprised not only the proclamation of the Good News but also "Heal the sick" Thus all over the world the so called 'works of mercy' developed, such as sanatorium, leper stations, homes for the mentally and physically challenged, specialty clinics, hospices, and AIDS stations in order to help sick and dying people. The sisters have stood in the forefront in this field. Doctors, pharmacists, medical technicians and countless nurses found their way to Tutzing or were trained there. They served in large urban hospitals and small bush clinics. Much could be told of their often heroic efforts.|
