National Catholic Health Care Week Day 5

Day 5 Reflection

This week we celebrate the visionary work of Catholic health care organizations. Catholic health care makes the Canadian health care system stronger, more responsive, and more sustainable. Guided by our values and inspired by our Founding Sisters, Catholic health care is a resourceful and effective partner within the health system, responding to the communities we serve with compassion, ethical integrity and the highest quality care and services.

Reflection questions
• How can you help tell the story build on the legacy of Catholic health care?
• Who can you reach out to support and encourage their ministry?
• What other opportunities are there for Catholic health care to provide healing and strengths for those in need?

Sustaining God, during National Catholic Health Care Week, we pray for our Catholic hospitals, seniors care centers, social services and other health care agencies. May they continue to provide healing and give strength to the people and communities they serve. We give thanks for the legacy of compassionate care they provide for us and the vision for holistic health they call us to in the future. Amen
