FSE Field Hospital

By Fr Michael Hansen SJ (JISA Ministries)

Pope Francis offered this image, 'I see the church as a field hospital after battle. The thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful.'


Amid the COVID-19 virus world we find ourselves in, Fr Michael Hansen SJ has created a Field Hospital of hospital departments and Ignatian spiritual exercises for those who, in lock down, illness or serving the sick, need critical help and healing now.

Each week a new Field Hospital exercise will be added below - for more information see the Field Hospital at JISA Ministries
