In a week, I will co-present on “Routine Miracles” with the priest with whom the ideas of the book were developed.
I spoke to dozens of patients last night and every single one of them that is in town will come. They were enthusiastic, grateful for what had been done for them medically and excited to share their stories with others. Ten to twenty of them at minimum will be there.
This was delightful.
I invited all of the physicians and experts who are in the book to celebrate THEIR work, to have them face to face with the grateful appreciation of human beings whose lives they had improved
*Sight to the blind
*Hearing to the deaf
* The dead brought back to life
* The woman with the ‘issue of blood’ stopped
*The orthodox lady whose life is centered on having children, but got incapacitating arrhythmias every time she was pregnant-CURED!!!
Not ONE of them is coming. Most did not even acknowledge the repeated invitation. It is an event for them. To ‘Feel the love’ . Even at its most crass and commercial, it is for THEM to generate referrals for themselves.
No interest. In fact, avoidance.
This is why I wrote ‘Routine Miracles”. There is an emotional disconnect on the part of our faculty, our senior physicians, a hole in their hearts. The patients see what they received as a “miracle’. “Oh my!!! I would LOVE to come!!!”
The doctors see it as ‘Routine”.
What can we do?
