Do Not Forget to Whom You Belong


You, Catholic Nurses, are daughters and sons of His Church.  You who walk with the Lord have the Holy Spirit within you.  You walk out the living Gospel as you care for your patients, families, co-workers, and friends.  You are entrusted with your piece of the “Mission which the Lord has entrusted [to you] His Church”, and you are fulfilling that which is entrusted to you when you live your Faith interiorly and exteriorly.  Be strong and steady.  Take a few minutes at the beginning of your days to give full attention to God.  Take advantage of the Sacraments as you are able.  Memorize Bible verses that you can recall when you need them.  Read a paragraph of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on your break.  Carry a Bible verse or Psalm in your pocket or iPhone for a reference during the days and nights.  God is with you, and in you, and for you.  Do not forget.  You truly are the Hands, and Feet, and Heart of Jesus, making Him present here and now.  Rely on Him, call on Him.  He will steady and strengthen you.

In Jesus' Holy Name,  Your President,  Ellen Gianoli, RN

Seeking Facebook Moderators
We are seeking moderators for a unique space to bring our prayers.

We are ready to launch a prayer wall and need volunteers for this private Facebook group.  We know that prayers of Catholic Nurses stretch over time and space for themselves and others in their life.  Help us unite with Christ in prayer. This is a private group for members only.
