Early in January, I was with Sister Sosefina in her new home in Levin. As we chatted over a cup of tea, she began sharing many stories about Divine Providence and her joy at how the volunteers and staff at the Soup Kitchen respect this value of the Sisters of Compassion.

Sister Sosefina also commented “Like the sisters, the staff knows not to turn any gift away. They have experienced, during the course of day, all gifts, big or small, have been sent or given for a reason that unfolds. That unfolding is usually over the next 24 hours.” It is amazing how this daily miracle continues and that we are always surprised by it.
