The time of pain that we live also presents us with lights of faith and hope capable of turning our gaze to the Resurrection of Christ. Saint Paul told the Romans that whether we live or die, we belong to Christ (Rom 14:8-10). The life and death of missionary Francisco Brito, consecrated in the Community of Alliance Shalom, married and father of four children updated this word of the Apostle today.
In the hospital bed, the consecrated sought to talk and evangelize the young nurse Rúben Cavalcante, 25 years old. “This rosary [photo] was given by a very dear patient, who just before he was intubated, put it in my hand and said that if he came back to consciousness I could give the third back, but if he didn’t come back, I could have the rosary for me ”, reported the health professional, in his social network.
a”Unfortunately, I will not be able to give you the rosary back here in this world, but I know that Our Lady is receiving you in heaven,” continued the nurse’s report. “I just wish at this moment that your family is comforted and that you trust in God. As he told me that day, ‘everything works for the good of those who loves God’ ”, concluded the professional.
“I heard a phrase these days that makes perfect sense:‘ When you’re a healthcare professional and go to work, two things can happen: either you touch a patient’s heart or a patient touches your heart ’. That sentence makes perfect sense to me.
This rosary was given to me by a very dear patient, who shortly before being intubated, put the rosary in my hand and said that if he came back to consciousness I could give the rosary back, but if he didn’t, I could have this rosary for me.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to give you the rosary back here in this world, but I know that Our Lady is receiving you in Heaven! I just wish at that moment that your family will be comforted and trust in God, as she said to you that day: ‘Everything works for the good of those who loves God’.
This patient was young, had 4 children, a wife, and all the time he said he loved them.”
