I am a first year medical student. Tomorrow we have a class on professionalism, in which we are presented a list of scenarios that may exhibit unprofessional behavior as a physician, and give our thoughts on each. One of the scenarios is that of a doctor who refuses to explain to a female teenager “safe sex” or prescribe birth control.
Please pray for me that I will have the courage to defend our Church’s teachings on the sanctity of sex between man and wife, and that the Holy Spirit may be on my lips so that I may articulate this beautiful teaching well, and also in the hearts of all who hear, so that they might hear and believe and employ it in their own medical practice.
Mary, Our Mother, pray for us!
St. Luke, patron saint of physicians, pray for us!
