Bishop Marc Trudeau is no stranger to suffering. In 2008, he was diagnosed with Stage III, Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma. He complained of pain in his stomach to his doctor, and within a week, he had started chemotherapy. “I went through about six months of being really, really sick,” he said. “But my doctor was always optimistic, he always knew that we were going to beat it. So, you have to believe him, he knows what he’s talking about!”
The auxiliary bishop for the San Pedro region also knows well the power of prayer. “I always say that even with the best medical support and personnel and the right kind of drugs, every cure is a bit of a miracle. During my illness…the grace of God and the prayers of so many of my friends carried me through,” he said.
Now, as health care workers across the world fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, racing to treat those who are sick, and to find a vaccine for the rest of us, Bishop Trudeau is offering his own prayers, in the form of a special Scriptural Stations of the Cross for Health Care Workers and First Responders.
