When Janet Sahm, co-founder of Verily magazine, was in college, she took a summer job with an elderly care program in Indianapolis. Though Sahm grew up Catholic, she’d become disconnected from her faith as she got older. Her interest in reconnecting with Catholicism coincided with her new job.
Before she was trained, Sahm got an emergency call to take the overnight shift caring for a 97-year-old infirm priest named Msgr. Richard Kavanagh. “I was scared to death,” she recalled on Christopher Closeup. “[We] both laughed because he knew I didn’t know what I was doing, but he was so gracious.”
I am among you as one who serves. (Luke 22:27)
Jesus, help me grow closer to You through humble service.
