Young African woman crawls 2.5 miles to attend Sunday Mass

29 08 2008

.- The Little Sisters of the Abandoned Elderly in Chissano (Mozambique) took into their home this week a 25 year-old African young girl named Olivia, who despite not being baptized at the time and not having any legs, crawled 2.5 miles every Sunday to attend Mass.

full story

What an example of faith she is and she wasn’t even baptized at the time!! I am in awe because if only everyone who called themselves Catholic had the same devotion to mass the world would be a better, different place.  Her example makes my mass attendance seem so easy.  I have two healthy legs to walk with and it only takes me fifteen minutes to reach the church how can I complain!  Everyone should hear her story and remember it every time they don’t feel like going to Sunday mass.
