Hero / Saint

The recent epidemic in China brought a flood of news about the fear of the population; fear of contracting the disease through contact with people who exhibit symptoms of the Corona virus. In some areas people are confined within the their towns and cities. Those aboard ships are being prohibited from going ashore. Face masks, disinfectants are in short supply.

My husband related the story of one Chinese man who decided to confront his fears and use his car for transporting those exhibiting symptoms of the virus to hospitals. He used face masks at first  and when they ran out he used his coat for protection. The report was broadcast on the radio.

When disaster strikes, heroes come forth and saints are made. Don’t know if this hero was Christian but he is certainly  living what Jesus declares: “Greater love has no man than this, that he would lay down his life for his friends.”  We may never hear what becomes of this person; perhaps he is a saint among saints unknown.
