Item Description...
Overview
What can we learn about healing from such Catholic leaders as Mother Teresa, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Dr. Gianna Beretta Molla, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Dr. Adrienne von Speyr, and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin? What might they teach us about such traditional healing virtues as compassion and kindness, integrity and ethics, patience and tolerance, humility and temperance? With health care on everyone's agenda, Doctor Ed Gamboa encourages us to explore anew and recommit to the traditional ideals and enduring virtues that make medicine and the practice of healing more than a job. Using life stories of heroic men and women who served as physicians, nurses and hospital attendants, or who were involved in medicine and caring for the sick, Gamboa provides inspiration and prayerful reflection for anyone working in the health and medical fields today.
