A reminder on Good Friday to remain faithful to one another

Good Friday is one of the most important dates in the Christian calendar. Director of Mission Integration Group Services Martin Loney explains that the day has significant meaning at St John of God Health Care as it lives out its healing mission as a ministry of the Church.

In the Catholic tradition, Good Friday is the day we call to mind the sacrifice, suffering and death of Jesus. We remember too those who remained with him at the foot of the cross.

Good Friday also reminds us of the inevitable difficulties and suffering in our own lives and the wider world.

Those in our care and their loved ones often feel these challenges acutely.

The events of Good Friday encourage us to remain faithful to one another, especially in times of difficulty and uncertainty. Through the quality of our encounters, we can help to create a supportive environment for those we serve as they make their way on their health care journey.
