Visit to An Angel


Pope Francis is visiting Ecuador just when I've come back, so I'm missing all the activity. But earlier this year I had the chance to help Franciscan missionary sisters send off a man, Don Ángel, to this residence for abandoned seniors in Quito. Don Ángel was someone I occasionally got to see in Puerto Quito, but had become homeless before the sisters found him a small temporary shack to live in, and then were able to coordinate with this residence in Quito. Right now, Pope Francis is visiting his house, and so even though I'm a little sad to not directly be a part of the acitivities, I'm very happy for Don Angel and all the people like him who are getting the visit of their lives!
