For almost six years now I have ministered as chaplain on the Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplants units at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Obviously this is participating in Jesus’ work of healing. But more specifically, while we have made astounding strides in treating cancer over the years, there are sadly, still people whose disease progresses in spite of treatment. As I sit with them and their loved ones the gift I give is the one Mary gave at the foot of Jesus’s cross: “witnessing the suffering.” And I believe that is redemptive.
