  • The Little Sisters of the Poor are known the world over for their dedicated work for the aged, the poor and the destitute. Their foundress, Jeanne Jugan, is not so well known, and yet it is her very distinctive spirituality which is the inspiration for the life and work of the congregation. At no time can the spiritual message of Jeanne Jugan be more urgently needed-not only in the work of the Little Sisters of the Poor, but for all Christian people. To whatever way of life they may be called. In this belief, Cardinal Garrone presents this short book. He writes in his introduction: To someone reading this book, perhaps Jeanne Jugan will reveal the secret of that love of which no particle is ever wasted-that love which begins and ends in poverty which most people prefer to discuss than live and which they never achieve since the true source and meaning of poverty are to be founded in God alone. In the life of Jeanne Jugan faith is indistinguishable from poverty. At a level as profound as this, Christs words in the gospel about poverty take on a new meaning. Only at a level as deep as this can we understand why the Lord accorded poverty the primacy among the Beatitudes to which the Gospel invites us.
