faces of sisters and their mission


Sister Joaninha Honório Madeira  (Brazilian)

"What we are going through here, really, is a cruel thing. It touches the heart of humanity. People are treated like objects, like trash, and here in Peru it's the first time we've seen it. Let's see. It's really a cruel thing. The expression comes from the missionary Joaninha Honório Madeira, of the order of the Immaculate Conception.
