The daily Dail prayer and the new National Maternity Hospital

Prayer and Hospital

The Irish Government has made the astonishing decision to build a new €300 million National Maternity Hospital, and give ownership of it to a religious order of the Catholic Church. The Vatican recently renewed its Charter for Healthcare Workers, which states that:

“Healthcare workers should be given a solid ethico-religious formation, which promotes in them an appreciation of human and Christian values and refines their moral conscience. There is need to develop in them an authentic faith and a true sense of morality, in a sincere search for a religious relationship with God, in whom all ideals of goodness and truth are based.”
