Body is in decay, yet he keeps faith alive!

I was visiting this house for the leprosy affected for the first time. A few of them are able to move on their own. Others are bed-ridden. The centre has a small room, with holy pictures and calenders on the wall for display. Whenever a priest visits them, they have the Eucharist celebrated here. 
 During our visit to the leprosy affected people
What captured my attention was a calendar of several sheets - with the Word of God, hand-written on it. One of the Catholic inmates of the centre shared his story. He spends his time writing the Word of God in big letters in the calendar and hangs it on the wall, for easy recall! His body is decaying, yet has a very healthy faith, healthier perhaps than many of 'healthy' us!
