What are your thoughts about Father Val’s donation as well as organ donation in general? Have you stated your intent to be an organ donor on the back of your driver’s license? Why or why not? Do you know anyone who has donated organs or received organ transplants?
I have worked with Monsignor Val Handwerker in a social service ministry some years ago. He is a humble and compassionate man. Because he is a spiritual individual I wasn’t surprised about his gift. In today’s world altruism has been reduced to photo opts and self aggrandizement. The monsignor demonstrates the essential quality of self-abnegation for sake of Christ. He is a servant of God.
I am a potential organ donor through the driver license provision.
