Missionaries of Charity - Soup Kitchen

"I was hungry and you gave me food, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I was sick and you visited me." These Bible verses from Book of Matthew are woven into everyday life of the seven Missionaries of Charity who we visited on November 11th, in Jukiceva Street in Zagreb.

We were welcomed by Sister Dobrila who taught us about life and work of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. After the lecture, we went on to volunteer in the soup kitchen. We peeled potatoes, chopped vegetables, and served meals. In the end we washed the dishes and tidied up the kitchen.

It was a pleasant and useful experience for all of us. I would like to thank once again the Missionaries of Charity for opening their door and their hearts to us, and allowing us to help those most in need. We headed home with our hearts full, wishing to return some other time to help those living at the edge of existence, and also help Sisters who radiate an incredible joy of life and love.

Thank you all.
