This chapter emphasize on the power of praying with a patient when possible. A family member states on page 115 “I was particularly touched when she prayed for Jonathan in the Hospital”. She was talking about being grateful to the nurse for praying. This text help me understand the importance of spirituality in healthcare settings and how I need to make sure this is also a “calling” for me. The insights I gain from the book is that God loves us more than anyone and we should love him only in return.

These saints greatly influence the lives of the people and this causes them to change their way of seeing things.
A core strength of the Loma Linda University Program is their capacity to seamlessly weave Christian values into an advanced medial education program. The medical profession absolutely could benefit from having professionals who come from a strong academic background, but it also needs professionals who strive to uphold Christian values within their daily lives. The values I’m referring to are characteristics such as compassion and integrity. Human compassion is at the very heart of the medical profession. It is the compassion that is nurtured by nurses, PA’s, and physicians which transforms the clinical and overwhelming medical world into something more humanistic and comforting.
Hunger, deprivation, and loss of freedom from the outside world were all common feelings in the Secret Annex. For months mental and physical illness could be felt deeply. There was no time for leisure or having a childhood with fear of the fear of the Nazis coming to take either the Frank or Van Daan family.

I chose St. Catherine because her story was inspiring.
