Advent Begins 2016

St. Michael’s Church Buffalo, NY
December 2, 2016

Sr. Johnice-Advent2016Advent 2016 has started with Sr. Mary Johnice talking about her experience first meeting and breaking bread with Saint Teresa of Kolkata in the summer of 1985. That meeting sparked the desire for Sister Johnice to start the Response to Love Center. Sister Johnice asked Mother Teresa if she could go to Kolkata to learn to work with the poor, Mother Teresa simply said no. Mother Teresa told Sister Johnice to go back to the East Side of Buffalo and find her own Kolkata, find the poor and look into their eyes; there you will find Jesus that was more than 30 years ago.

Sister Johnice talked about her challenges and successes in starting and running the mission at Response to Love Center. But the advice of Mother Teresa kept Sister Johnice inspired “to do small things with great love.”
