The Church is not some kind of association that concerns itself with man’s religious needs but is limited to that objective. No, she brings man into contact with God and thus with the source of all things.
Life in the Church’s faith involves more than a set of feelings and sentiments and perhaps moral obligations. It embraces man in his entirety, from his origins to his eternal destiny.” —Pope Benedict XVI (via fathershane)
Aw thanks so much! All glory be to God :-)
By the grace of God, I got through my first year of nursing school! I can’t believe I am senior now! Even though school was so overwhelming and frustrating at times, I have learned SO much. God has blessed me with wonderful teachers, friends, and experiences. I know it sounds so cliche, but I love what I do-helping people physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. Not only did I get a chance to play a small role in some of my patients lives, but they have definitely changed my life in so many ways, and really helped me to see Christ in everyone. I hope that whenever I do become a nurse, I am able to provide the best possible care for my patients and uphold their dignity.
God is so good.
A Nurse’s Prayer
Give me strength and wisdom,
When others need my touch;
A soothing word to speak to them,
Their hearts yearn for so much.
Give me joy and laughter,
To lift a weary soul;
Pour in me compassion,
To make the broken whole.
Give me gentle, healing hands,
For those left in my care;
A blessing to those who need me,
This is a Nurse’s prayer.
