In this talk, Dr. Bruchalski explains, line by line, part of a speech given by Pope Benedict XVI to U.S Bishops during his April 2008 visit to the United States, and he applies it to the problem, as well as the solution, of the “crisis of the laity in medicine.” Dr. Burchalski sees the answer to this crisis in the Holy Father’s illuminating words, “only… when their faith permeates every aspect of their lives, do Christians become truly open to the transforming power of the Gospel.”
