Heroism

 

 

 

 

 

The catastrophe at the AMRI, Kolkata is hard to believe yet very true. Details are known to us. The thoughtfulness and courage of the two young nurses to rescue the patients under their care, to the extent of succumbing to death is more than heroic. We salute them and the nurses all over. In your name we raise our hearts in prayer. As God’s instruments through your service you bring ease and peace, enabling patients to bear their helplessness and unavoidable pain. To the victims’ families we assure our sympathy and prayerful support.

May Christ, the Lord of life and death console and strengthen you at this moment of pain and in the future.
