Indeed, the country runs on their hard working backs.

Praise God for every one of them.


I used to enjoy these forums. So many people that need the green dot now.

"deplorables" ? You want to thank us, but call us deplorable? I'll assume that is some sort of typo error.

It's a bad joke from Hilary's campaign as I recall.

In many hospitals, along with the doctors and patients who multiply in their work to manage the indescribable number of patients who come due to the coronavirus, there are also priests who also carry out an impressive spiritual work. And their help is not only focused on very sick patients, but also, increasingly, on the health professionals themselves who see dozens of people die and helplessly experience the advance of the virus.
Furthermore, there are more and more priests among the victims. In Italy there have already been 50 deaths, the youngest of them at just 45 years old.
There are several testimonies that are known of chaplains in hospitals collapsed by the coronavirus. One of them is that of Angelo Rossi, an Italian priest, chaplain of the small hospital in Treviglio, a center that is seeing 75 people die of coronavirus a week.
The chaplain is claimed in the hallways by doctors and nurses. One of the aspects that this chaplain highlights is the spiritual assistance that doctors, nurses and the rest of the health personnel are demanding, and even the security guards who watch over there. When they see him go through the corridors they stop him, ask him to pray for them, or directly cry over helplessness and tiredness. His day-to-day life consists of short visits to the rooms where the sick are: he recites some prayers with them, blesses them, imparts the sacrament of confession or the Eucharist. Many ask for the Anointing of the Sick, but Don Angelo is angry when he associates only with the dying. "It is the sacrament of healing, in which we ask the Lord for the strength to face a moment of physical or spiritual fragility, not just the last request for forgiveness and repentance that must be made before leaving."
Father Rossi is on the edge, as his work goes on day and night. Security guards, after long shifts, collapse in front of him for preventing family members of patients who are dying from entering. Thus, they come to ask him to confess after years completely estranged from God. And he talks about situations like when he meets nurses in the hallways who cry and ask him to pray for a patient, or doctors, who also break down crying, because they have had to tell a family member that there are not enough machines to support a being wanted alive.
"All this reminds us all that man is very small if such a small virus manages to bring entire nations to their knees," says Father Rossi. "Here, I rediscovered that we are creatures, that we need greater love. In these weeks I have met men and women from whom I learn every day, and I discover that, although their hearts are full of questions, they are still totally dedicated to caring for those who come, just as Jesus would have done.” And he adds that “serving the most fragile, the sick, is a privilege. I am sure that every face that I find inside these pavilions has the suffering face of Jesus.”

Once Churchill gave a speech specifically thanking the janitors of the underground subway system for winning the war. Since it served as a bomb shelter and even living quarters for many of london's people - he stated that it would have been unlivable if not for them.

No politics allowed here.

Everyone is on the front line with this thing. Absolutely everyone...


I saw generals create imaginary "masses of manoeuvre" with a crayon and dispose of enemy concentrations, that were on the ground and on the map, with an eraser. Who was I to criticise them, hero as I was of a hundred "Chinagraph wars" of make-believe?

We are all in the firing line and have our duty to do (just heed the bloody expert advice you selfish whatsits) but certain professions are the ones 'going over the top' day in day out. I get to work from home while poor Mrs w has to go out to work as essential staff. Two nephews are working in hospitals too and are about as in the front line as its possible to get.

So yes Model1950 I echo your big shout to those who face additional danger and do it without complaint because its their job.

Special thanks to Maryland's government for running commercials that the Maryland National Guard is here to assist in humanitarian causes. Strange though, that they started these commercials ten days after the guard snuck into town and hid from sight.

Also thanks to local law firm Cordel and Cordel for advertising that they are running an on-line service for men with divorce issues. Way to go Cordel, no other firm sacrifices like you do.

And finally [for today], Plaza Ford for having special Coronavirus deals with cash back and low financing in order to help out in these trying times.
