A Disciple in Healthcare


Maria Natividad de la Torre had a choice. Known as Madre Nati, as director of a Guadalajara hospital she could treat the soldiers entering the building with the same disrespect that their government showed Catholics. Or she could meet them with courtesy and hospitality. Mexico’s first female saint chose the latter path, and the hospital remained open throughout the uprising known as the Cristero Rebellion.


St. María, many people I have to interact with every day
don’t share my values.
May I learn from your example,
and show them love and charity instead of anger.


Offer your morning prayers for the person in your life you believe would least appreciate them.
