Globalization of Indifference
A Formation of the Heart
A merciful heart does not mean a weak heart. Anyone who wishes to be merciful must have a strong and steadfast heart, closed to the tempter but open to God. In this way we will receive a heart which is firm and merciful, attentive and generous, a heart which is not closed, indifferent or prey to the globalization of indifference.

Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care is the only Catholic home care agency in Connecticut. The agency provides all levels of in-home care, end of life care (six months or less as determined by the doctor), and support for the individual and his or her family members.
The Hospice Program provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support to individuals as they make the transition of acknowledgement and acceptance that curative medical care is no longer beneficial. Our Catholic Faith prompts us to provide services to people of all faiths and beliefs. If you or your family are in need of hospice care, or have questions, please call Laura Borrelli, Hospice Director, Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, 203-238-1441. More about Hospice Care>
