Pope Francis made an unscheduled visit to the Little Sister of the Poor, sponsors of the Jeanne Jugan Residence, which provides independent living, assisted living and nursing home care to low-income seniors. Pope Francis’ message to the group was about the Little Sisters’ “mission to the elderly” and “how important it is in a society that tends to marginalize the elderly and the poor,” Sister Constance told Catholic News Service on Sept. 24. http://www.littlesistersofthepoor.org/index.php/component/ content/article/44-news-a-events/446-little-sisters-of-the-poorget-unscheduled-visit-from-pope-francis Stephanie Gabaud, a resident at the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Unit in Yonkers, had the opportunity to meet and be blessed by Pope Francis at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. CBS New York reported that “Her surprise encounter with Pope Francis was caught on camera. He walked right up to her before the Thursday night service and gave her a hug, a kiss and a blessing.” http:// newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/09/27/westchester-girl-blessing-pope-francis/ 53 Adviser a publication of LeadingAge New York | Fall 2015 (See Noteworthy on page 54)
