-Patrick Harrington, 2016 Spring Break Missionary (Ave Maria University Graduate 2016, President’s Award Finalist)

“My experience at Guadalupe Gardens truly opened my eyes to the spiritual poverty in my own life. God was truly present in all those who work for Guadalupe Gardens, the humility and total trust that they have in God was very inspiring. What touched me the most was all the people that I came in contact with who had truly suffered in their life. These people showed me the joy of Christ by how they treated me. They helped me realize that the most important thing in life is to have God, nothing else can fill our deepest desire, to be loved. God does not call us all to live the life of a missionary as some people do, but he does call us to have a missionary’s heart. God came to save souls and this is the most important thing in life. We are all called to different paths, but all headed the same way. Christ waits for us with open arms and for all those he puts in our life.”
