I recently accompanied my father to the Hospital and it was an extraordinary experience. I live in Portugal and our public health care system is far from brilliant. The medical staff did a good work, may God bless them, but my dad had to wait for a couple of hours in a corridor packed with other patients. There was a lot of suffering in that corridor but there was also the presence of GOD. And this is no metaphor, believe me, the presence of JESUS wasn't just real, it was overwhelming. I've never felt anything like it - not even at church. This may seem strange to atheists and unbelievers but I actually loved the experience. When I was an unbeliever, I hated going to hospitals but not anymore. Yes, there were patients suffering but there was also JESUS, He never left those people, not even for a second. And, of course, where there is JESUS, there is also Love and Charity: in those few hours, I witnessed great acts of charity and the medical staff was wonderful. I would love to do some volunteer work at the hospital but I'm not a doctor and I have no idea what to do. Any tips are more than welcome. And please pray for the health of my father, may he live a long and healthy life.
