"True love is always contemplative, and permits us to serve the other not out of necessity or vanity, but because he or she is beautiful above and beyond mere 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.
