“Go and find him when your patience and strength run
out and you feel alone and helpless. Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel. Say to him,
‘Jesus, you know exactly what is going on. You are all I have, and you know all
things. Come to my help.’ And then go, and don’t worry about how you are going
to manage. That you have told God about it is enough. He has a good memory.”

Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, to be canonized tomorrow.
