“Spiritual, but not religious,” is one of the catchcries of our time. Fr Michael Whelan understands this sentiment and sees a way through for Catholic health and aged care.
In this two-part episode, Fr Michael Whelan, SM, offers a way of embracing the diversity and complexity of human life and experiences encountered by Catholic services as they care for all they encounter -- staff, patients and residents. He offers a four-fold focus on relationships as a means of remaining true to the Catholic vision while respecting differing ways of seeing and living life. He reflects on creating a genuinely healing environment in the context of diverse approaches to religion, spirituality, life and its meaning.
