[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1792] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN HONOR OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DON GUANELLA VILLAGE ______ HON. JOE SESTAK of pennsylvania in the house of representatives Wednesday, September 29, 2010 Mr. SESTAK. Madam Speaker, on September 26th, 2010, in Springfield, Pennsylvania a ceremony marked the 50th anniversary of the Don Guanella Village. It is my personal honor to join the good people of Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District in celebrating that event. The Blessed Luigi Guanella, founder of the Servants of Charity, said ``it is not human beings who erect charitable institutions and feed the poor. Providence does all.'' That sense of faith and humility has always been the hallmark of one of the most capable and caring organizations in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and our Nation. My first hand knowledge of the good works performed at Don Guanella Village dates from my days as a student at Cardinal O'Hara High School over forty years ago. Then and now the staff at Don Guanella Village have been personal heroes to me and thousands of others throughout the Greater Delaware Valley. Every day of the year those remarkable men and women offer around the clock care to some of our society's most vulnerable souls. In so doing, they offer the residents and their families peace of mind they would not otherwise find. A nation is not measured by how it cares for those blessed with health, wealth, and position. It is measured by how it cares for those challenged by a variety circumstances beyond their control. I ask that every member of this chamber pause and thank Superior General Alfonso Crippa and everyone who contributes to the vital work of Don Guanella Village. It is their countless acts of charity and goodness that help make ours a great nation under God.
