Celebrating 100 Years of Catholic Health Care

Celebrating 100 Years of Catholic Health Care

Sister Judith Ann

After nearly a century of care, OSF came to the community and immediately understood that the Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary ARE Heart of Mary Medical Center. They are the mortar that fills in all gaps and sets firm the walls that provide the environment where we labor and serve. My heart is full of gratitude. I fully agree with Bishop Tylka in that Catholic health care always upholds the sanctity of life and is a gift to our communities and our church. OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Center will be a continued presence of peace and healing in the Urbana area for many years to come.

Ultimately, God entrusts in us a higher profound calling, to bring the love of His Son, Jesus, to a world and people desperately in need of it. I love the text from St. Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 25 when Jesus said: “Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do to me!” God identifies Himself with each of us. As we extend ourselves in support of this Sacred Ministry, in whatever form that support takes, God accepts as having been given to Him. How can your lives not be blessed. On behalf of our Sisters and all of those we serve with the greatest care and love, thank you. God bless you.
