‘Always Room for One More’ By Sister Lucy

Sister Lucy Kurien founded Maher in 1997, in one small home in a village outside of Pune, India. This humble beginning has blossomed into over 46 homes around the country, now touching tens of thousands of women, men and children in hundreds of communities. Maher means mother’s home in Marathi, and Sister Lucy has created the warmth and love of a mother’s home for the abused and traumatized women, children, and men. Her work has attracted countless awards, her events often include the likes of President of India, and wisdom keepers from across the world consider her a kin. Through her journey, Sister Lucy’s most fundamental prayer is simply that the fire of love ignite in more people’s hearts and inspire them to serve. Below are edited excerpts from Sister Lucy’s various talks during the October 2018 visit to Northern California.
