Through a series of imaginary conversations, Rev. Michel Lafon introduces us to the life and spirituality of St. Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor. As one who gave herself entirely to God and the aged poor, Jeanne Jugan is a friend and patron of the elderly but she is more than that. In our materialistic culture she calls us to live the Beatitudes, trusting that God will provide. She challenges young people to refuse God nothing in following his call. No matter what our age or vocation, she invites us to do everything through love. After founding the Little Sisters of the Poor by welcoming the needy elderly into her home and caring for them with extraordinary love and dignity, Jeanne Jugan disappeared into the shadows. She spent her last years in forced retirement among the novices and young Sisters at the community motherhouse, quietly instilling generations of her daughters with her spirit of humility and charity. At the time of her death there were already 2,400 Little Sisters serving the elderly in nine countries. Today over 2,700 Little Sisters continue the charism and work of St. Jeanne Jugan in thirty-two countries around the world. Spiritual journeys are best experienced with a guide. Now you can receive guidance from some of the seminal spiritual figures of all time. Each volume in the "15 Days of Prayer" series contains: a brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume, a guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat, and 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides.
