"In the prevailing culture, priority is given to the outward, the immediate, the visible, the quick, the superficial, and the provisional. What is real gives way to appearances."
Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel
My husband John and I are connected to Haiti through John's work there as a doctor and through our organization, Haitian Hearts, which brings children and young adults to the United States for heart surgery. I write about our experiences in this lovely, suffering country. Haiti is the kind of place that breaks your heart, even as it fills it up.
