Every Thursday a small group of us go the Little Sisters of the Lamb to do gardening work, cleaning, or whatever else they need done. These mornings were some of my favorites in Rome. The sisters are so trusting, relying entirely on God’s providence, and their simplicity is so beautiful. It doesn’t matter whether we are raking leaves, cleaning the chapel, trimming trees, or pulling weeds, just spending time with the sisters, getting to know them and learning from their way of life is a wonderful experience. They are some of the cutest sisters I have ever met. The four sisters we work with are from France and Spain and are working on their English. They are always very excited to learn new English words. They are always laughing and so joyful. At the end of our morning of work they always give us tea and cookies, which is a great time to talk to them more than the gardening work allows. Here are a few pictures from our last day with them.
