ORPHANS AND WIDOWS MINISTRY
Bringing the Church Home!
Orphans and Widows Ministry
is formally offered to His Bride
with a mission to promote, establish, support, and/or evaluate
Christian health ministries,
and to conduct scientific research to better define and/or describe the care,
and/or evaluate and denote the effectiveness of the care
that Christian health ministries provide.
Furthermore, the Ministry desires to seek out
survivors of intentional trauma
and/or people estranged from the Christian community,
and to promote, advocate for, and/or provide for their care
through established Christian health ministries,
and through those ministries to educate and support their caregivers.
Susan Moore R.N. is the foundress of Orphans and Widows Ministry,

1. Health Ministry and the Human Person
A human person is created by the living and loving God
in the image and likeness of God.
A human person is an enfleshed soul.
A person's soul is the animating life-force of that person,
and is given to that person directly by God.
Each soul is unique and purposed for divine unity with God in heaven,
thus a soul can neither be given nor transferred
by one human person to another.
That is why it is possible to clone a body but not a soul, as the soul comes
directly from God, and belongs to God. And that is why, except in cases
of legitimate defense, it is not permissible to commit murder,
as God is the sole Author and Sustainer of life: He both gives life
and takes life away. Therefore, man is not to presume authority over Allah.
It is through one's soul that one's body, mind, spirit and relationships
are expressed and kept until death. At death a human soul departs its corpse,
its physical body, for a time. Because the body and soul are otherwise one
how this separation occurs at death is a mystery of faith.
But because the soul expresses itself through the body, mind, spirit,
and relationships of a person, caregivers can offer any combination
of physical, mental, spiritual or relational help-gifts to people
for the glory of God.
Within the context of Orphans and Widows Ministry, a health ministry can be
either an individual or an entity who provides a caring for souls within
the context of the above definition and description of personhood.
For a few examples, a health ministry can be offered through an individual,
such as a private practitioner,
or an entity such as a school, church, hospital, nursing home, rehab center, etc.
Therefore, the more expressions of the soul for which a health ministry cares,
the more comprehensive the care provided. That is to say, for example,
a church offering spiritual care as well as mental health support groups
offers a more comprehensive caring for souls than most mental health clinics.
But that is in no way a negative judgment, for both are to fulfill a good purpose
for the glory of God.
As further defined by Orphans and Widows Ministry, a Christian health ministry
functions within the understandings and freedom of the full deposit of faith
to offer soul-care directly to a person's body and/or mind and/or spirit and/or
And finally, as defined by the Orphans and Widows Ministry, a comprehensive
Christian health ministry functions within the understandings and freedom
of the full deposit of faith to offer soul-care directly to a person's body
and mind and spirit and relationships -to the entire person.
Orphans and Widows Ministry (OWM) will be most fully expressed
as a non-profit comprehensive Christian health ministry.
Thus at this time OWM is forming an index of those individuals
or entities who provide Christian health ministry
-as the term "Christian health ministry" is defined above-
with the expressed intention of cataloging that information for,
and offering that information as needed to, the Christian health ministries
who desire to collaborate with Orphans and Widows Ministry
so that the mission of the Ministry may be completed.
Christian health ministries are encouraged to contact
OWM, and to submit contact information to:

2. The Spirit of the Law and the Care of the Worker
A person can be said to be duplicit when that person is being "two-faced"
or "double-minded". Duplicity occurs when, through an intentional act,
what one says opposes what one does. For example, it would be duplicit
for a person to say, "I am compassionate" and then put one's own children
out on the street through an act of ill will. For others can judge for themselves
how compassionate, and also how duplicit, how deceptive, another person is
by looking at how a person treats those who are closest to him or her.
There are two components to a law, the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.
The first component, the letter of the law, is what the law actually states.
The law will be stated in precise, legal terms in an effort to provide clear
direction on how to best follow the spirit of the law. Following the law requires
a person to both will and act. A person must first desire, must first will,
to follow the law, and then must act in accordance with that law.
Regardless of whether a law is followed or not followed, when a person's will
and act go together there is a sort of integrity, that is, a lack of duplicity,
between what that person says and what that person does: his "yes" means "yes",
and his "no" means "no". So when a person says they will not follow a good law,
and then indeed does not follow that good law, they have demonstrated an act
of integrity relative to their own private judgment -but would we trust that person?
The question becomes, then, what makes a law a good law instead of a bad law?
To answer this question one looks at the second component, the spirit of the law.
The spirit of the law is the good intention the lawmakers had in mind
when they wrote that law. The spirit of the law is considered the heart of the law.
It is often unwritten because it always points
to the eternal power and divine nature of God, which is ineffable.
Thus the spirit of every law is a sign
that points to God's sovereignty -His absolute law.
His law is absolute because it is good and true, and without duplicity:
His will and act are the same. What God says is what God does:
His "yes" means "absolutely yes" and His "no" means "absolutely not".
God's law is truth, therefore it is the law which all human laws are judged against.
And because He is love His law is good.
Therefore, it would be duplicit to infer that a human could make something,
a law for an example, better than that which God has made.
However, a law can be a bad law when, even though its heart points to God,
its letter demands that to follow the spirit of the law a person must act
against God's sovereign law.
Case in point would be Hitler's eugenic regime, which required that particular
persons, such as the handicapped, the mentally ill, and the developmentally disabled
-those with systemic or genetic challenges or complex diseases-
What mushroomed from that was an act of prejudice demonstrated through
the extermination of people whom Hitler hated: primarily God's chosen people,
It was as though he believed that to hide his own guilt he could exterminate
God's people and therefore exterminate God. But no one is more powerful than God,
thus He cannot be exterminated.
God is sovereign, He is God alone.
If God were to suddenly stop being, we, too, would suddenly stop being,
along with all of creation.
For in Him we live and move and have our being.
God is sovereign and omnipresent: there is nowhere where God is not.
He knows your thoughts and reads your heart like a book
-and yet He loves you beyond reason.
Although the spirit of the law was good -to strengthen and purify humanity-
the means given to do so, euthanasia (murder), was duplicit.
It was duplicit and against God's sovereign law because it was a means given that
was relative to the private judgment of Hitler, instead of a means measured against
the absolute judgment of God.
Thus because it was Hitler's way, and not God's way, instead of strengthening
and purifying humanity it weakened and corrupted us.
God's way to strengthen and purify humanity has been recorded in Sacred Scripture,
which was written down and compiled by His people, and which has continued to be,
-through the millennia-
interpreted and taught by His one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church
whom He built upon the faith of and progressed from the person of Saint Peter.
So we see by that extreme example of Hitler's eugenics that where duplicity occurs,
private judgment, double standards, and prejudice also occurs.
In regards to avoiding double standards we have been told,
"Love your neighbor as yourself" and,
"Treat others as you yourself would like to be treated."
So, how would we like to be treated? Most people know the answer to that question:
if you were one of the people who euthanized others, would you yourself
have longed to be euthanized if you were, instead, disabled?
If you were disabled would you have gone looking for a euthanizer in eagerness
of the love of the human law? No, in these situations we must pray
and follow God, not people. Worship God alone.
Now to bring all this into our everyday lives,
let us look at Workman's Compensation Insurance laws.
Most states have Workman's Compensation laws that were written in the spirit
of protecting both the employer as well as the employee from exploiting one another
after an injury occurs. For instance, a State may write a law whereas the injured
employee may receive both treatment for the injury and pay continuation.
In exchange for treatment and pay the employee, under most circumstances,
cannot sue the employer.
Such a law is written with a good spirit. The good spirit desires to equally
protect and help everyone involved, and to return the worker to good health
and productivity as quickly as possible. But when the spirit of a law is ignored
the balance can tilt in favor of either the employee or employer,
to the detriment of the other.
In some states, for example, the process of receiving compensation and care
goes something like this:
after a worker is injured there is a four week period in which the employer
can choose whether or not to honor the worker's claim of an on-the-job injury.
At any time during that four week period the employer can honor the claim
or deny it, which means that the employer can also choose to wait until the end
of that four week period to communicate their decision.
Furthermore, the employer can choose to say nothing.
At the end of those four weeks of silence (plus 3 days for shipping in case the denial
was mailed at the last minute, not including Sundays or holidays),
the State is allowed to deduce that the employer is honoring the claim.
At that point, after choosing to be silent for over four weeks,
the employer has an additional two weeks to appeal the State's decision.
If the employer chooses to remain silent for those additional two weeks
(plus 3 days for shipping...), then the State officially accepts the claim
and begins to fund the injured worker's care
-at seven weeks post injury.
So what that means is that for almost two months the injured person sees only the
initial ER provider and a Worker's Comp clinic provider. And although both providers
may order medications, treatments, tests, and consults, no pharmacy or healthcare
provider is willing to offer those products and services, because until the seven
week waiting period is over there is no guarantee of financial reimbursement
-unless the employee chooses to pay out of pocket and not be reimbursed.
The pharmacies and providers say they must financially protect themselves this way
because which employees the Managed Care Organization (MCO) choose to fund
and which ones they choose not to fund seems to be entirely random.
To further the physical suffering and mental anguish of the injured worker,
each medication, treatment, test, and consult that is ordered is subject
to its own two week period in which the employer can appeal the request
for that product or service. So although after seven weeks the State can begin
to fund the care given in the ER and the Worker's Comp clinic, any additional care
that is ordered is further delayed by additional periods of silence or rejection
by the employer. In the meantime, both the employer, as well as the MCO who meters
out the care, press both the employee and the employee's doctor
for the injured worker's timely return to work.
Meanwhile, there is a request for compensation (pay) form that must be obtained,
filled out and returned by the employee if the employee desires to receive pay.
But the law does not stipulate who must inform the hurting soul of the need
to obtain, complete and return that form. After the suffering soul discovers,
obtains, completes, and returns that form, there is a further two week delay
(plus 3 days...) in which the employer can appeal the request for compensation.
Or the employer can simply remain silent for two weeks, and at the end of which
the State will make a determination that the employee be compensated.
Then there is a delay while the compensation is researched and tabulated.
After the amount of compensation is determined, there is another two week delay...
If we add the three together -(1)the initial seven week period of silence
plus (2)the employee's unawareness of the need to obtain, complete, and return
the request for compensation form plus (3)all the additonal delays each time
a new treatment, medication, procedure, or consult is ordered-
we have injured workers ending up needing public assistance, extended care,
as well as losing their homes and insurances.
Employer abandonment of injured workers is a huge and growing problem.
The suffering caused by this abandonment occurs because,
although following the letter of the law,
for reasons relative to the private judgment of the employer,
in a duplicit act that is adversarial to God's absolute law,
the employer chooses to not follow the spirit of the law.
Health ministries must avoid acts of duplicity against God's law.
God's law is love.
To be God's good and faithful servants we must love one another.
In fact, we have been told that others will know we belong to Him
by how we love one another.
For without divine intervention,
to follow the way of private judgment,
-which means to not love God above all things,
and to not treat people as you yourself would like to be treated-
always leads to only one end:
Just in a different form.
We must seek out and care for the sick, the marginalized, and the hurting
-whoever they may be.
Because this is what our Popes have asked us to do:
because this is what Jesus has asked us to do.
3. Reductionism: Diagnostic Codes and Pain Management
Reductionism is a result of the desire to avoid God. It is a spiritual sickness.
It is a way of looking at things that reduces all things to their smaller
and smaller parts so that the whole of the thing can no longer be identified
For example, it is an act of reductionism to reduce a law
-which always contains both letter and spirit-
to only the letter as a means to rationalize one's avoidance of spiritual realities.
Why does this reductionism occur? Because the spirit of the law is always a sign
that points to God's sovereign law. God's sovereign law is absolute
-there is no greater law than God's.
But for whatever reason, reductionists do not like that -why don't they?
Because, whether they be afraid or hateful,
they do not want to submit to the authority of God.
But in respect to Godly things, submission does not mean to allow yourself
to be overcome by someone's act of oppression. No, submission is your choice.
It is an act of your will which reveres and upholds the dignity of the other.
But in our time many have given authority to science over God.
All sciences study the created things, except theology, which studies the Creator
by studying God's self-disclosure to mankind. But even in theology there is more
to God than what He has already revealed to us. For when we meet God face to face
we will see Him more clearly.
Because we need to study the creation in order to understand it,
we cannot also be its Creator, which means we must be part of His created order, too.
In that case, except in the wildest imaginations that He gave us,
we have been created with no capacity to be gods.
Therefore, let us remain full of wonder and joy as we submit to His authority instead.
For we are each an enfleshed soul created and purposed by God.
We are each a unique, intricate and unexplainable wedding of the spiritual reality
of our soul with the physical reality of our body
-we are, indeed, fearfully and wonderfully made-
thus until death we dance as one: where there is our body, there is our soul.
But it has occured that through reductionistic thinking the human person
is thought to be merely a physical matter.
What is left from that reductionism in the caring of souls are diagnostic codes
that only address the physical matter:
they do not fit or do justice to the exquisiteness of the human person.
If a person fractures their leg they go to the ER. That is to say, the whole person
goes to the ER. The leg does not go alone while the person waits at home
for the leg to return. This is because our parts enflesh the same soul of the person:
the parts and the person go together. Thus caring for a person is different than
caring for a thing, such as a car or an oven.
In fixing a thing the thing can be taken apart, its parts strewn all over the floor,
while the broken part is removed and a replacement part obtained.
No, a person cannot be dismantled and strewn about while waiting to be fixed,
but rather the whole person must go to the ER or OR to be fixed:
because wherever there is body there is soul.
To have the knowledge and will to care for people, then, is pure gift from God.
And this gift must be offered with the greatest respect and kindness for people.
On Earth, human pain is the epitome of expression of the wedding of body and soul.
Pain is evidence that we are more than the sum of our parts.
For although it is the body that is injured or ill, it is the soul who hurts.
Thus reductionist healthcare providers, in their efforts to avoid God,
also avoid or minimize encounters with another's pain.
The desire to avoid God is why some reductionists react to another's pain with,
"I don't believe you"
-as if understanding pain required an act of faith!
Does that same provider react to a person's complaint of a broken leg with the same,
"I don't believe you"? No, of course not.
They do not because it is more difficult to see the human person as an enfleshed soul
when it is only the body that appears to be injured.
But as soon as there is a complexity to the case
-such as unexplained pain-
reductionists get spiritually queasy.
But because of this reductionist mindset that is so prevalent in some societies,
we have a healthcare crisis caused by providers and systems whose care is lacking
in quality and timeliness -how many specialists can a person in pain be referred to?
The pain pathways within the human body are well studied and do not require religion
in order to be understood. Therefore it is completely inexcusable
that any healthcare provider cannot identify and adequately treat pain
-and in a timely manner-
in accordance with the allowances of their license to practice. Failure to do so
is an act of duplicity, an act of deception -an act of mal practice.
This means that for those who have a license to practice and who consult
on Workman's Compensation claims and choose to deny a treatment, a denial
that is allowable under the letter of the law, but yet who do not also offer
a better treatment and thus fail to uphold the spirit of the law to do no harm
to the patient: these providers are demonstrating negligence or malpractice.
That is to say: you can say "no" to the request, but then you must also offer
something better. That is what the State has trusted you to do
-to provide good soul care to its workers through your powers as consultant.
As health ministries we want to avoid reductionism, for reductionism leads
to duplicity. And as discussed in the above,"The Spirit of the Law and the Care
of the Worker", when duplicity occurs, private judgment, double-standards,
and prejudice also occurs. These play out in behaviors that are adversarial
to God, and thus are antihuman as well as antiChristic.
For in the end they are the fuel for all hate crimes, such as eugenics.
"I plead with you, then, as a prisoner for the Lord, to live a life worthy
of the calling you have received, with perfect humility,
meekness, and patience, bearing with one another lovingly.
Make every effort to preserve the unity which has Spirit as its origin
and peace as its binding force.
There is but one body and one Spirit,
just as there is but one hope given all of you by your call.
There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all,
who is over all and works through all
and is in all" (Ephesians chapter 4, verses 1-6).
If the ways of people bent away from God lead to war, addictions, and orphans
(arms trafficking, drug trafficking and human trafficking),
then the triple aim of the ways of the God-fearers
are salvation, reconciliation and redemption.
This is offered to people through the words, works and will of the caregiver:
such as through prayer, charity and chastity.
It is through these three means, when offered together without duplicity
and accepted together as one act of faith,
that the whole person is healed.
"It was John who said, 'Master, we saw a man using your name to expel demons,
and we tried to stop him because he is not of our company.'
Jesus told him in reply, 'Do not stop him, for any man who is not against you
is on your side" (Luke 9:49-50).
"He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters"
4. Human Trafficking
The human person was created to love God and all other people, and is permitted
by God to respectfully use things. That contrast, between how we are to love
people versus how we are to use things, needs to be made in order to emphasize
that only the human person is made in the image and likeness of God.
When we forget or deny that we are each a unique soul made in the image
and likeness of God, it becomes likely that instead of loving people
and using things we will, instead, love things and use people.
That reversal happens because when we forget or deny that we are creatures of God
we profane our human identity: and we begin to act as that which we have chosen
to become -as a thug.
Furthermore, when we usurp another person's free will
-free will is a gift from God-
and use people through some kind of implicit or explicit force or coercion
in order to increase our treasures, we are then called "human traffickers".
The term "human trafficker", therefore, has nothing to do with moving:
in fact, it is possible to be trafficked in one's own residence.
Thus for people who forget or deny we are creatures of God, human trafficking
should not be a surprising outcome, correct? For we have been well instructed:
"The love of money is the root of all evil" and "No man can serve two masters.
He will either hate one and love the other or be attentive to one and despise
the other. You cannot give yourself to God and money."
Each state handles its own human trafficking cases and, in general,
the FBI handles cases that cross state lines.
Quoting from the FBI website regarding human trafficking (reference below):
"Among the Civil Rights Unit's priorities is its human trafficking program,
based on the passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,
which provided that 'neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,
except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been
duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.'
Under the human trafficking program, the Bureau investigates matters where
a person was induced to engage in commercial sex acts through force, fraud,
or coercion, or to perform any labor or service through force, coercion, or threat
of law or legal process.
Typically, human trafficking cases
fall under the following [four] investigative areas:
Domestic Sex Trafficking of Adults: When persons are compelled to engage
in commercial sex acts through means of force, fraud, and/or coercion.
Sex Trafficking of International Adults and Children: When foreign nationals,
both adult and juveniles, are compelled to engage in commercial sex acts
with a nexus to the United States through force, fraud, and/or coercion.
(Note: Matters of domestic juvenile sex trafficking are handled by the FBI's
Violent Crimes against Children Section.)
Forced Labor: When persons, domestic or foreign nationals,
are compelled to work in some service or industry through force or coercion.
Domestic Servitude: When persons, domestic or foreign nationals,
are compelled to engage in domestic work for families or households,
through means of force or coercion."

Also each State has resources, such as Ohio's human trafficking website.
5. Healthcare Staffing
In the United States, for example, some States have already put in place
safe-staffing laws for their healthcare settings. If your government has not yet
chosen to make such laws or, instead, has chosen not to enforce those laws,
then your people will benefit from your encouragement to make and follow such laws.
This legal necessity is based on the understanding that a healthcare worker
is a physical being, and thus can only occupy one space at one time.
Therefore, if those enfleshed souls are habitually assigned too many patients
for their workloads, then it should be expected that the care you and
your loved ones receive may well be lacking because of the physical limitations
imposed by our current existence within measurable time and space.
A human person is a rational soul: a soul who thinks and reflects.
Therefore, as a rational soul made in the image and likeness of God,
a human person is a creation with a free will whose actions and speech
are to express integrity with one another,
as well as with one's own thoughts and God-given conscience,
and thus also with God.
Thus the free will is given by God to humans so that a person can chose
to communicate one's soul -one's self- freely and without duplicity
for the good of God's Creation and to the glory of God.
That is why, on our Day of Judgment, we each must stand alone
before all of humanity and God.
Therefore, to usurp the free will of souls so that they are "compelled to work
in some service or industry through force or coercion", reduces those souls,
in effect, to voiceless things used to act out another's duplicit desire.
But a soul's actions and speech are meant to go together. Thus that compelling
to act out another's duplicit desire through force or coercion silences the victim
from freely and effectively communicating one's self
-it takes away the God-given voice of the soul.
This conniving to take away the voice of the person
-and then doing so-
is an intentional act of wickedness, and is a hallmark of the predatory mindset.
And a predator is a human trafficker of forced labor when, in order to increase
his treasures, the predator silences the victim by means of force or coercion
in order to reduce the person to a voiceless thing used to perform
the trafficker's work.
Perhaps some, such as the imprudent and predatory healthcare administrators
who ignore the wisdom of safe-staffing laws,
shall be referred to as "white-collared human traffickers".
But victims are victims only while they have no voice. Be reassured:
once their voice is heard and adequately responded to by the community
of people who honor God, the victims will cease to be victims, and instead
will become survivors of intentional trauma.
("How blest are the poor in spirit: the reign of God is theirs!")
The word "habitually", as used above, is also important. Most people can pull
from a reserve of energy unconsciously set aside for crisis situations.
But allowing our healthcare workers to be forced or coerced into (1) silence
and to (2) habitually work from that crisis reserve of energy,
has enormous negative effects on the health of the souls
of both the patients and the healthcare workers,
as well as their loved ones and communities, including the souls
of the unrepentant predatory healthcare administrators.
Those enormous negative effects include, but are not limited to:
For patients: Increased time in healthcare facilities due to infections
and poor outcomes. This includes the increase in the corresponding
testing, medications, treatments, and surgeries, and their related
increased length of stays because of additional infections and poor outcomes.
For the loved ones of patients: Increased stress from and difficulty coping with
a chaotic healthcare environment due to their own voice being silenced
when no one is available to adequately hear and address their concerns.
Absenteesism from work and the corresponding decrease in income.
A decrease in savings due to an increase in expenditures related to the
increased length of stays and unexpected funeral expenses.
For healthcare workers: Increased errors due to fatigue, distractions,
and physical limitations. An increase in on the job injuries. A burning out
of the crisis reserve of energy with corresponding manifestations of anxiety
and depression. Increased absenteeism. Leaving the job or profession.
Experiencing an increased stress load on the relationships that are effected
by those changes. Acedia. Self-medicating by means of drugs and alcohol,
or by means of other vices. Despair.
Each of those negative effects bears a monetary price, as well as a cost
to the worker's soul: and both the worker and society pay.
For whistleblowers: Inadequate protection from retaliation;
with the resultant stress on or breakup of family systems,
financial dependency or ruin,
For society: An exploitation of the public's trust, and of the dignity and health
of its people. An increased need for public assistance for both the patients,
as well as the injured, ill, or blacklisted healthcare workers, and their families.
Furthermore, the ability to collect and misappropriate the illegally
or imprudently obtained treasures wrought by trafficking healthcare workers,
only serves to reinforce those administrators' predatory mindset and desire
to misuse, again, their power.
And thus, for unrepentant predatory administrators: Hell.
(But "Blest are they who show mercy: mercy shall be theirs!")
In lieu of all of that, it seems there are some questions that must be asked.
1. The treasures obtained through the administrators' acts of imprudence,
-such as from ignoring safe-staffing laws-
that is, the treasures obtained through:
(A) the increased length of the patients' stays due to increased infections
and poor outcomes,
(B) plus the treasures obtained through the increase in testing, medication,
treatments, and surgeries that correspond to those increased length of stays,
infections and poor outcomes, as well as the
(C) treasures obtained through having fewer workers assigned
for what the workload requires-
where does that money go?
Does it stay in state? Or does it go out of state -out of the country?
Where does that money go?!
2. What adequate safety policies are in place to protect the worker from
retaliation, particularly from retaliatory administrators who "blacklist"
whistleblowers (for this is obviously organized crime);
and what vocational retraining is offered to whistleblowers?
Why are they called "whistleblowers"?
3. And what and where is law enforcement for this human trafficking,
and what and where are the victim's assistance programs?
"Based on a passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution",
the citizens of the United States have civil rights
that protect them from human trafficking.
So where can help for the trafficked people be found?
