I want to thank you for the opportunity to add the photo and relic of St. Gianna to my practice.
Within a few weeks, the staff working in the room where the relic is displayed came to me to ask for more information. Patients were questioning the staff about St. Gianna and it became immediately clear that St. Gianna was busing evangelizing. People want to know her story. One of my staff is a young mother of one who was contemplating whether or not to have more children. She was stunned to learn the sacrifice that St. Gianna and her family made for the sake of life. Needless to say, that staff member is now beaming with her second pregnancy several months along! I don't know all that went into the decision, but St. Gianna's witness certainly didn't hurt.
My staff is also now requesting that we create an informational flier to place on the wall next to the relic so patients can read and learn more about St. Gianna. Suddenly, the staff and patients are coming up with ideas to promote her story! How wonderful.
Thanks you again for devoting your time and talent to the St. Gianna Physician's Guild.
Peace and God bless,
