In 2024, we enter our 14th year publishing the Vitruvian Man website, and we remain committed to the three most important stories in all of literature:  the story of the good Samaritan, the story of the adulterous woman, and the leper’s encounter with Jesus.

These stories teach us and remind us that

  • We are our brother’s keeper.  All life matters.
  • No one is without fault, and everyone is forgiven… “Neither do I condemn you.  Go your way and sin no more.”
  • Faith is at the core of healthcare.  It is important to practice ‘sick care,’ but a doctor can do nothing without your faith.

Continue to make prayer a part of your life.  Pray for peace and pray for children.

“Prayer is the presence that holds harmony in the midst of chaos.  Every time you pray, you add to the light and harmony of creation.  If you do not pray, if you do not believe in prayer, then you are living off the prayers of other people.”

John O’Donohue, 1956 – 2008

In his 2013 exhortation, Evangelii Gaudiumthe Joy of the Gospel – Jorge Bergoglio [Pope Francis] tells us,

“An authentic faith… always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values [and] to leave this earth somehow better than we found it.”

We agree. Choose to do things that matter to make the world a better place.

Be Kind
