Dioceses in the USA are celebrating Fortnight for Freedom at this time of year, and the Bishops have proposed the Little Sisters of the Poor as the first example of Religious Freedom.
The founder of the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Jeanne Jugan was beatified by St. John Paul II in 1982. For the past few years, my wife and I have visited nursing homes for Christmas Eve and played Christmas Carols on piano for the residents. Since moving to St. Paul in 2014, we have been able to go caroling at the Little Sisters Holy Family Residence down town. There, I have begun to learn more about the Sisters and have truly appreciated their fight for freedom.
