LIBERIA - A Catholic humanitarian group based in Spain says a nun from the Congo who was working in Liberia has died of the Ebola virus.
The San Juan de Dios hospital order says Saturday that Sister Chantal Pascaline died "from Ebola in the Hospital San Jose de Monrovia, despite the care she received from a volunteer nurse."
Pascaline belonged to the same order as a Spanish missionary priest and nun evacuated to Madrid by jet this week. Both are in stable condition in a Madrid hospital.
The latest Ebola outbreak is the largest and longest ever recorded for the disease and so far has killed at least 961 people, the U.N. health agency said Friday. It emerged in Guinea in March and has since spread to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.
May she rest in the Peace and Love of our Lord, ping!
God bless her.
May God welcome you with open arms into paradise, Sister, and say: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”.
The virus must have the ability to devour and destroy a healthy person very quickly. I pray that this Nicotine based serum discovered in America can be made available quickly. I hope industrial thinking, i.e., “How is our cooporation supposed to profit if we produce the antidote now, vs a year from now when we could sell to the government at quadruple the price midst all the hysteria?” does not impede the world’s safety.
Yes, another nun in a long line of probably thousands of nuns over the centuries who died in the service of the poor, orphans, destitute, mentally and physically ill, handicapped and dying. Welcome to the Communion of Saints, good Sister. Requiescat in pace. Amen.
Dear God...oh wait...
I wonder if Ann Coulter will write a rude, snarky piece about this angel of mercy?
Rest in peace, Sister.
Rest in peace. Well done, His good and faithful servant.
May she be remembered and serve as an inspiration.
May her souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Very much like St. Damian who while serving lepers contracted leprosy and died. May she be elevated to sainthood.
From a purely business standpoint more need to die to ensure the money invested in mass production efforts is returned in sales.
I don’t think 1000 dead justifies a mass production effort, IOW (again from a business perspective). And then of course there are regulatory hoops to jump through before any “drug” can be sold in the US.
