Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. St Ignatius Loyola
Hello LOL families and friends!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving! I wish you all a safe and happy holidays!!! Let us all remember to thank our Lord for all the graces and blessings He has given us. To our families, friends, bosses, colleagues, pets and everyone we encounter in our lives, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU!!!
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all LOL members, old and new for making our mission possible. Your generosity enabled us to serve our Lord through our less fortunate brethren. What a true blessing indeed!!!
We are just 8 days away to our 2 main events. I received some inspiring emails from people who came across our blog as they were googling for charity events in our area!!! I am so ever grateful to my sister in law, Baby for creating our blog!!! She made it possible for us to spread and share our mission to care for the poor. I hope our new friends can join us and feel the presence of the Lord in what we do.
I urge you all to express your gratitude and share the blessings to our least fortunate brethren.
This is our birthday and Christmas gift to the Infant Jesus!
