A word from the President
“I commit, insofar as I am able, to coming to serve in Lourdes…”
Our friend Michel GOMIS, whom God has called to himself after many years of suffering, was a shining example of these words from his Engagement promise.
If anyone was living testimony to the concept of service, it was him. He freely gave to the utmost of his strength, his willingness to serve, his skills and his experience of living the Hospitalier spirit.Over and above the service that he gave, we all remember that Michel was living testimony also to the mes- sage of the Gospel of which St Paul reminds us (Corinthians 1. 1:13):
“If I do not have Love I am nothing”.
Michel leaves us the beautiful memory of an exemplary Hospitalier.
Today he is with God and he will finally know the three things that last according to St. Paul:
Faith – God and in His Word
Hope – of healing
Love – of his neighbour, of human con- tact
And rest assured, God will welcome him because he will have borne witness on earth to the greatest of these virtues: Love.
