HISTORY AND

INFORMATION

Chaplaincy is an ancient and noble calling within the Church. It is to share and offer God’s love to all those in need.

The word “chaplain” comes from the Latin word Capellanus. The origin of the term is associated with a legend about a patron saint of France, called Martin de Tour (316-299 AD). The legend says that on a cold winter night, on his way home, Martin found a beggar shivering with cold.

What is a chaplain?

Chaplains are men and women in charge of sharing and offering God’s love to all those who are in need and accept the commitment to become agents of change and instruments of God in the process of restoring the mental, physical, social and spiritual health of humanity, especially those in need. The term chaplain also refers to those religious ministers who exercise their pastoral work in public and private institutions representing not a particular church, but the creator and sustainer of this universe. They do not limit themselves to attend to the needy who come to the church but go where the need is.

Fundamentals

The foundation of chaplaincy is the love of God; if there is no love of neighbor there is no true chaplaincy. Let us look at some biblical characteristics of this love: 

  1. He sympathizes: Matthew 25:35-40: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in, naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to me. Matthew 9:36-38: “And when he saw the multitudes, he had compassion on them, because they were helpless and scattered like sheep without a shepherd.

Importance of the chaplaincy ministry:

“And because wickedness is multiplied, the love of many shall wax cold”.

Lately there has been a notable increase in the need for chaplains, both in government and private centers. This need has revealed the great importance of the spiritual area in the development of the human being. The phrase “Without faith it is impossible to live” takes so much connotation in the therapeutic or rehabilitative process in the human being, that it has been in most of the cases a fundamental stone for his recovery.
