n behalf of
all of us at CHRISTUS Health, I am pleased to bring you Miracle
Moments Online…a collection of inspirational stories
that speaks to the CHRISTUS Mission to extend the healing
ministry of Jesus Christ.
These stories have been submitted by a variety of sources
close to CHRISTUS, including Sisters, Associates, physicians,
patients and their family members, volunteers and residents
of the communities we serve. Miracle Moments Online contains
stories about particularly moving incidents or interactions
with others that have affected the authors’ lives in
a deep, profound and possibly unimaginable way.
Quite simply, an event becomes a miracle when it reaffirms
one’s faith in God, in one’s self, and in the
human spirit. To the CHRISTUS family, such moments serve as
a reminder of the special privilege we share working within
a faith-based health care system, where we may personally
experience or bear witness to miracles each and every day.
It is our hope that our Miracle Moments stories will serve
as reminders that God works through us to heal and comfort
those in need—physically, spiritually and emotionally.
May your hearts be filled with peace and happiness as you
read these stories, and may you always remember to look for
miracle moments in your own life.
