Despite ongoing religious freedom threats, humility and cheerfulness in serving the poor are at the heart of the mission for the Little Sisters of the Poor, the order's vocations director said.
"One soul at a time – this is what we're about," Sister Rosemarie Yao, director of vocations for the Little Sisters of the Poor, said at a religious freedom discussion at Marymount University in Arlington, Va. on Saturday, three days before the 2016 election.
"To value the dignity of the human person, to care for them with love and respect until Almighty God calls them home to Himself, not one minute before or one minute after," she continued, outlining the mission of the sisters.
Sister Rosemarie addressed an audience at the event titled "Is America Still the Land of the Free?" It was sponsored by the Arlington Diocesan Council of Catholic Women and the diocesan Office for Family Life.
