About the Image: Susan Boyle meets Suzi Boyles!
"Little Sisters of the Poor has a Resident who is a Priest; this Resident adores Susan Boyle; that’s right, the international superstar second runner up on “Britain’s Got Talent” – Susan Boyle...Recently, the Resident’s family purchased the Resident tickets to a charity event happening in Minnesota so he could actually go and watch Susan Boyle sing live! Unfortunately, the Resident’s health declined and he wasn’t going to be able to go see Susan Boyle...
Our Activities Assistant reached out to Susan Boyle’s team and through the power of prayer – Susan Boyle decided to come and see this Resident...The moment was here, Susan came through the Resident’s bedroom door; at that very moment time stood still. That is when it happened; Susan Boyle got down on her knees, bowed her head and prayer, and received a special blessing from the Resident. The room and hallway started to fill with raw emotions; there was not a dry eye on the 2nd floor. Mother Maria Francis had everyone step out of the room so that the Resident and Susan could have a private moment. Through the door, we could hear her singing 'Somewhere over the Rainbow'...
Susan stayed, and visited our Art Show, which featured Art made by our Residents. Everyone was overjoyed when Susan sang “I Dreamed a Dream”. As she flawlessly sang, her eyes brightened, she was uplifted by the Lord; her eyes remained fixated on the Resident she came to see – she even pointed to him during the song. Before she left, Susan gifted the Resident with the music note scarf she was wearing. One of the Sisters gifted Susan with a painting she created of the Minnesota state bird, the loon."
