A time for prayer and mercy

Excerpt: 25 years of Evangelium vitae- The Gospel of Life
The global pandemic of Covid-19 is a stark reminder of the frailty of human life. You may read the Holy Father's message here identifying the deep relevance of the "Gospel of Life" in the circumstances we now face. 


World Day of the Sick,

Lent Begins

Excerpt: 28th World Day of the Sick-
On February 11th we recognized the 28th World Day of the Sick[1]. Initiated by Saint Pope John Paul II, this day offers Catholics around the world a special opportunity to pray for those suffering from illness. In Luke’s Gospel we hear that a woman, bleeding and suffering from what is possibly an obstetric hemorrhage, fights the crowds to touch the hem of Christ’s garment. Christ, the woman being healed, tells her that it is her own faith that has made her well. While our vocation to medical practice enables us to heal the sick after training and education, this Gospel reminds us that the patient is central to the delivery of care. The ability to care for the sick relies heavily on the perception and trust in the covenant relationship of doctor and patient.
