Helping our elderly sisters brings a good feeling to me. 

Seeing their happy faces really makes me feel good, that’s why helping out the elderly sisters was such a good experience for me. This gave me a better idea of how to be a compassionate person, in caring them with love and patience, besides, it also made me feel really good about myself.

I hope to continue to get that feeling throughout life as I help people. 

I realize, this is a way I can share the gift of being a Samaritan to others in need, to be a hand in their most needy moments for comfort and strength. The Gospel impels us to be for heralds of the Word by being the hand of God in our world.

May this gift of sharing our faith and love for Christ be a shining armor in our service to others.
