Find Triumph in Challenge — Your Weekly Reflection
When you face a challenge, how do you perceive it? It’s easy to let our struggles overwhelm us—even scare us. But in today’s Gospel, Jesus wants to remind us that there’s a silver lining in every challenge.
As we reflect on the challenges our global community of health workers have faced over the past years, let us use this gospel as a reminder to focus our energy on the lessons we’ve learned—and the ways they’re making us stronger.
U.S. Catholic recently published a special feature on CMMB Volunteer and OB-GYN Dr. Joseph Sclafani and his journey to South Sudan—a journey that began in 2019 and was put on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Inspired by his faith, Dr. Sclafani found an alternative way to serve despite travel restrictions. In collaboration with our team in South Sudan, Dr. Sclafani helped launch a series of remote learning sessions for healthcare professionals across the countries we serve.
The silver lining: Even now, after Dr. Sclafani has been able to return to in-person service, his remote learning sessions continue. They have proved to be a valuable resource to our teams around the world—and one Dr. Sclafani looks forward to continuing.
