THE TRUE WAY TO LOVE GOD IS TO SERVE AND HELP THE HELPLESS HUMAN BEINGS AROUND YOU
Life is a gift from God. One must know how to see the nursing vocation as a call to serve the sick through every moment, every breath, by staying close to the Lord, and patiently ministering to them. This way, through the testimony of one’s life and patiently ministering to them, one can lead them to the light of divinity and to the experience of healing. One should not feel despondent or dispirited through the repetitive nature of one’s work; rather, look on it as a chance to display God’s compassionate nature.
People who are physically and emotionally worn-out due to chronic illnesses and feel helpless and hopeless need the care and compassionate love of Jesus shown through the committed service of the nursing personnel. This ministry can witness to transformation into total healing, filled with hope for the future and positive energy for daily living, of the patients under their care. Thus, it is possible to transform the nursing ministry into channels of divine blessings.
Nurses are the guardian angels who stay by their patients with care and compassion and provide consolation and relief and serve as life models for others. Their presence is like the deluge that engulfs a desert region after a long spell of dry weather, like the light that shines at the other end of a long, dark tunnel, and like a lungful of fresh air to someone suffocating for want of life-sustaining oxygen.
