Angel Without Wings, He is Dr. Jorge Ignacio, A Medical Oncologist and Chairman of the UP - PGH Cancer Institute.

He is Dr. Jorge Ignacio, a medical oncologist and chairman of the UP - PGH Cancer Institute. In his simple gesture and pure heart, you will never go wrong. 

Dr. Jorge Ignacio
A medical oncologist and chairman of the UP-PGH Cancer Institute.

In this situation that we are all in now,
these pictures serve as an inspiration for me.
It is another way of healing your soul, that reflects another.

It is an honor to see how humble he is, Dr. Jorge who entered the hospital even though the whole of Manila was on lock-down. Like many frontliners, he is one of those who still fulfills the call of duty, in spite of difficulties and dangerous Pandemic Covid19.

" You're traveling in the road less traveled."
"Yung reward mo po Doc, lahat kaming pasyente mo love ka at ipinagdarasal kang mabuti."

I am inspired by his passion and dedication. In my heart, I observe how tiring to be a doctor with a heart. “First God, you are our great healer, second is the Doctor that you gave a gift to us." I am saying this as an expression of our love, of our affection, of our respect to you Lord, and to our Oncology Doctor Jorge Ignacio.

Grant my prayer o Lord, that this little message gives him extra energy he needs to work for his many patients. When tragedy hits us, we are comforted by his presence, his support, his medicine, by his love, by his care and I am sure by his prayers. And so I pray for him and his family the best of every day for his health and long life. God bless you and keep you safe away from any harm and any viruses. Stay healthy and happy Doc.

God really put people in our lives to teach, inspire, and believe that there is something for everyone to look up. "Salamat Doc sa pagiging matatag mo in spite of everything nakatayo at sugod pa rin tayo, tuloy ang laban mga kapatid." Hehehe

"That in all things God may be glorified!"

My Personal Note and View:

Modern medicine can be viewed as miraculous. The patient must follow the plan for the treatment and what we do is even more important than what our Doctors can do. Our Doctor is a coach, a teacher, a vessel through which knowledge and the power of healing flow. Just as priests are instructed and reminded that they are not the source of blessings, Doctors knew their place, that they are not the source of healing, but its conduit. And so our best friend Doctor will lead us to spiritual and so we all pray for one goal.

In Latin, “patient” means “sufferer.” Part of our doctor's job is to ease suffering, relieve pain. There is a large temptation for a physician to develop a God complex, given the science, the technology, the immense knowledge and readily available medicine on the one hand, and the vulnerable, weak patient, Yet our Doctors very blessings can make us stumble and turn into curses if not dashed with humility. And so we pray to God to gift us Doctor who will be our inspiration to recover our self-motivation.

I recall, a priest told me before my operation procedure, that Doctors are sad to see their patients losing hope and worst if they die, they cried and most of them really went to confession with a broken heart. So I must be strong to fight and believe that Mama Mary and God are with me/us so I must live because my Doctor will get hurt and broken if I won't.

Another priest, a friend of mine called me from Italy just a timely 30 minutes before my operation, he said don't be afraid. The doctors are working because there is a cure. You are blessed, talk to God and he will give you a sign that only your heart could understand. All his words lighten my soul and my heart never felt any single fear, I cannot remember all his words but I remember the feeling of surrendering my self to God is the best weapon I got.

I lost my Ninong Doctor Joel Ruiz​ 2 years ago, and with Doc Ignacio, I found the same spirit and soul like him, My husband and I agreed that he is very like Ninong Doctor who lives in the lives of many as a missionary Doctor. A Doctor that is truly sent to me by God through my angel Doctors too.

Our Doctors are like us, they are also human, with my limits. They are powerlessness if we patients are not cooperative. As kindness is a sign of strength, surrender is a sign of confidence. So, I must say that we must continue praying to Our Great Physician who holds life and death in His hands, for our Doctors to have the strength to love their noble profession, and use its powers, and never abuse them.

I remember on the very 1st day of my Chemo Cycle, I ask Doc. Jorge Ignacio what are the things, food that is not good for me. He told me, No Preservatives, and Narrate to me the Ten (10) Commandments. So I think that is the best Doctor for me to consider his spiritual balance of everything. It is a very worthy reminder for me to consider self-examination in away.

Remove obstacles to healing

Let us go of any feelings that may be obstacles to healing. It can help if you go to confession and receive the Eucharist.

Sadness and deep regret may trouble you, that is not what Jesus wants. In the Gospels, He teaches that healing can be found in helping others and so they are helping us too.

Jesus, help my eyes to see all the good you sendest me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go in the way that you wilt show me.
Jesus, help my hands to do all things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, may I be helpful, growing every way I can.

To our Dearest Doc Jorge Ignacio and to all our dearest front liners. God bless you and your family. Keep us all safe, healthy, and unharmed from any viruses. Jesus, King of Mercy. We Trust In You.

Let's keep these thoughts by heart from the original post of Doc Jorge Ignacio, the heart of a true-blooded Doctor for his family and the family of his fellow frontliners in these trying times.

"So may I ask a favor, please treat our families well when we are gone. They are all that we can leave you to remember us by. We do not ask for monuments or citations. Just treat our loved ones with the love we laid on this fight.

From my heart, I thank you all for your understanding! Doctor Jorge Ignacio"

It's worthy of my many million cells and surely for anyone to think about how much we love our family and yet the call of duty and love remains superior.

Just timely, naiiyak ako for no reason at all just watching the song of Saint Bernadeth of Soubirous. Salamat at mas bumilis at dumami pa ang iyak ko, while reading the message of Doctor Jorge Ignacio, dahil dumami ayan natapos iyak ko. Pati message pala ni Doc nakaka heal, napa tahan ako agad. Hehehe! Napaisip na rin. God's love is a pearl of endless wisdom.

Very true indeed, to our countrymen, we appreciate all your helping hands, prayers, and concerns. Yes, it's more important to us, the family of frontliners to give us your kindness, support, and prayers.

It's not an ordinary thing nowadays. A challenging time for us and to our loved ones who are now out as frontliners, it's truly heartbreaking to know the risk that only God's love could help us in his comforting words and promises.

Kumakapit lng ako sa promise nya "That He will keep us." Hindi ko pa naranas sa buong buhay ko ang nangyayari ngayon. Di ko pa naranasan maiyak na just looking at our wall clock maalala ko ulit magdasal. Yung uncertain ka anong feeling ba yung sabi ng heart ko. Each time, I will see them going out our home, and be back using our back door to keep us away from any harm. Yung, nasaan na kaya si Tony and other members of my family na need lumabas dahil sa call of duty, and be thankful and happy again each time na makakasama at makaka usap sila muli na parang ang saya saya pa rin nila kahit pagod inaalala pa rin nila ako at pamilya.

Lord, God in heaven please protect us with your most precious blood. Amen.
