Good Samaritans in Our Midst

Sometimes, when we need it the most, help comes from the most unexpected places. There are Good Samaritans in our midst.

  • This week, I was overwhelmed with the kindness of many healthcare professionals. They not only saved my life but honored my dignity.
  • Our family and friends reached out and lent support not only to me, but to my family in many quiet, unknown ways – and who are still doing so.
  • Several of those who have dedicated their lives to service in ministry reached out in our hour of need. Many were total strangers – the chaplain they called to be with Richard as soon as they realized I was having a heart attack, a Christian church minister who came to the hospital to pray with me less than an hour after my cath, and other members of their pastoral staff. I met some remarkable people. And I appreciate our friends in ministry who also helped, especially¬†a dear friend who works in pastoral ministry at the hospital who made a point to visit every day and arranged for a priest to administer the sacrament of anointing and a wonderful lady from our parish’s health ministry.

In the story of the Good Samaritan, we see who makes the effort to stop and help the person who needs it – the one who makes the time to visit the sick and care for them.

This week, I experienced how wonderful their care is and how they work as the hands and feet of Jesus.

And for that, I am grateful.


Wow. It's Quiet Here...
