God’s Kingdom Inside A Hospital
By: Rosy Adriano
It is not an easy task to create a warm, fuzzy, loving atmosphere when one volunteers for the hospital ministry. Due to the patient’s physical capability, our activity should be as relaxing as possible. It should not add any more stress to their current state. We also have to consider that the hospital has very limited space. We make sure we do our activity where we will minimize interrupting any normal operations there. The most challenging part though, is to make the patient (and their guardians) feel loved when they feel very hopeless at that time.
As a child of God, it is my responsibility to make sure that everyone feels welcome in His Kingdom. That everyone feels love, because loving others is the best way to show your love for God. “For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed Me, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.” (Matthew 25:35-36) Read more from P3 of this week’s Parish Bulletin
