Act of kindness

Neoauteur posted a wonderful account of meeting great people doing charitable work.

"Just as I was about to leave the booth, I saw something I would never forget. Emerging among the leprosy patients were three young nuns, around 19-22 years of age, wearing all-white attires. They were the patients' caretakers. They fed them, answered their questions, and cleansed their wounds. The nuns performed their jobs with pure joys having neither afraid of the nastiness of the wounds nor the fact that leprosy is a highly infectious disease. I could see in their eyes genuine affection and devotion. I could feel the tender and warmth radiated from the devoting way the nuns conducting their work. They treated the lepers not as their patients but as a friend in need of loving and care."
