Story of the principal
There was news from a French friend the other day. After having worked for a long time, I had a break and was the present condition report that returned to own place again. She works as an assistant in a community called "rarushu" which Canadian Jean Vanier founded. rarushu is physical, and the people from a youth with mental disabilities to the generation of the elderly are bound together for Christian mind like a family, and it is a community living a life together. Is insufficient again there even if it takes time that each member can do it; even if it is possible, and meet you, it is valued that perform it as a member of the family. This is because it thinks that each one whom God gives a life to can hold something out for others. For example, because a handle was usable even if a foot was inconvenient as for a certain boy, she was doing handwork, and the girl of the state bedridden at all warmed the heart of the community by a pretty smile.
I became a long time ago, but I have done the work of the housekeeper as that assistant for approximately two months, too. I was in charge of the care of washing and the meal, various things of the house, but it was at the opportunity when being concerned with the resident (living person) who lived together than work itself reconsidered various things. I was reminded of it by own degree of leaning that eyes faced immediately and was often asked "how is it?" by time and efficiency and the efficiency including the progress condition of the work than "doing anything" from a posture to value at all that there was it together there. In addition, there were many people hurt for various reasons and was, but my heart was often healed when I touched the depth of the heart to love their others. I had you accept me who was plain, and it was an experience loved deeply.
The friend who came back to own "place to stay" from a holiday made up the mind to work throughout the life in rarushu and seemed to decide to dedicate oneself to God through it. It is not at all a comfortable way, but wants to pray for a blessing for the friend who established a course to bet own life on heartily.
You love all existing,
It is disliked nothing with the thing which became the sashimi.
I could not be made if he/she hated it.
Though you do not expect it, I continue,
The thing which exists though you are not called
Will it be carried out?
A master loving lives all your thing,
As for you, all is treasured. (book 11 of the wisdom: 24-26)
