BOSTON (RNS) In a week when Boston hospitals cared for more than 170 bomb victims, staff chaplains were suddenly in great demand. They moved calmly from emergency departments to waiting rooms and employee lounges, offering a compassionate ear and much-needed comfort.


  1. Rev.Sarah Lawson

    Thank God for the presence of Chaplains and others who come alongside people in such unbearable suffering. Prayers for tenderness and compassion to encircle all who suffered and may His loving touch fill all care-givers as they seek to reach out to others.
