On April 2008, we had the joy to gather our friends and benefactors around some pieces of “Art with Passion and Compassion”, during two events, at the Argentinean and at the French Consulate in New York. It all started when artists from Argentine were moved by the Mission of Heart’s Home and decided to donate one or several of their works to support us. They were touched by our love for art, by our belief that beauty is a way to quench the thirst of the human heart for infinity… and we became friends.
A small committee of dedicated people in New York worked very hard to organize the preview cocktail at the Argentinean Consulate and the “leaders for Compassion” gala dinner at the French Consulate, where these pieces were sold for the benefit of Heart’s Home.
We are very grateful for the generosity of the artists, of the benefit committee, and of all you, our friends and benefactors who took part in both events. Your friendship and generosity encourages us to continue and deepen our Mission.
I must say that the faces I saw during both events, your faces, remind me of the faces of our Missionaries. It reminds me of the love, the smiles and the joy that they give to street children, orphans, and sick people. And I think about all the “thank you” that our Missionaries receive every day from the people they serve.
I want to pass you on this “thank you” on to you who “help us help”. Thank you, for whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did it for Me (Mt 25:40).
