Catholic Physicians' Annual Promises


Moderator: In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

All: Amen.

Moderator: Lord God, our Father and Creator, we ask You to look with favor upon Your servants gathered here today to pledge themselves to Your service as Catholic physicians. We ask You to forgive their sins, enlighten their minds, strengthen their wills, and open their hearts to Your grace.

Catholic physicians, you are called to imitate Christ, the Divine Physician, to make your work His work and His work yours, to dedicate yourselves to the needs of your patients, keeping all financial and political interests secondary to the I personal needs of each patient. Do you accept the responsibilities of your apostolate?

Physicians: We do.

Physicians: We do.

Moderator: Do you promise to live chastely according to your state in life, especially in regard to your patients, who trustingly place themselves in your care?

Physicians: We do.

Moderator: Do you promise to adhere faithfully to the teachings of the Holy Father and the Bishops united with him, in makers of faith and morals, especially as related to the science and practice of medicine?

Physicians: We do.

Moderator: Do you promise to work together with other Catholic physicians with mutual support and understanding and to bring them to the apostolate?

Physicians: We do.

Moderator: Do you promise to support the work of the Catholic Physicians' Guild and to pray for all Catholic physicians?

Physicians: We do.

Moderator: May Our Lord strengthen you in the fulfillment of these promises. We pray this through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.
