Former Atheist Doctor, Returns to God for Strength, Peace Amidst COVID-19

Dr. Lulian Urban Lorenzo from Lombardia who was an atheist, returns back to God for granting him strength and peace during this season of fight against pandemic.

“What we have seen and done in our hospital for the past three weeks has been nothing but a nightmare. Until two weeks ago, we and many of my colleagues were atheists,” Lorenzo said. “One hundred percent believed that science excludes God because we are doctors.”

The Italian Doctor recalls the peace he received after an encounter with a dying priest who read scriptures to other infected patients suffering from Coronavirus.

The 38-year-old Doctor said “He helped to give us the peace we never expected in just nine days when all hope was shattered. Remembering that we were helped by his weakness…the good shepherd went to the Lord.”

Lorenzo explained that several of his colleagues became ill and passed away – but all hope is not lost and he will continue to care for the sick and dying, CBNNEWS Reports.

“I will live like that priest until my last breath for others. I am happy to have returned to my God when my loved ones were suffering and dying around me, ” he said.

“We begin to feel that God begins where man ends. Truth be told, we who were atheists until yesterday, now pray to God for peace,” he said. “The courage that was supposed to be lost has somehow returned. We are more energetic now.”

Lorenzo proclaims he is now a Christian and asked for prayers that he may continue to care for the sick.
“I was an atheist, but now I’m returning to God. Pray for us to help care for the sick,” he concluded.

Christian artist Mandisa recently commented on Lorenzo’s story and referenced Isaiah 55:9 – revealing that God’s ways are above earthly understanding.
“God’s ways are higher than ours. Look for Him shining in the dark. Be the one He speaks through.”

God’s ways are higher than ours. Look for Him shining in the dark. Be the one He speaks through. . Thirty-eight-year-old Luliane Urban from Italy who was infected with Covid-19, witnessed the extraordinary testimony from a doctor, Lombardy: “I was an atheist, but now I’m returning to God.” “What we have seen and done in our hospital for the past three weeks has been nothing but a nightmare. First a small stream, then growing, like a large river; A dozen, and then hundreds, have flowed. Now we are not doctors but selectmen. It is the selectors who decide who should live and who should be sent home to die… Until two weeks ago, we and many of my colleagues were atheists. One hundred percent believed that science excludes God because we are doctors. I used to look at my parents at church and mock them. A 75-year-old clergyman arrived here nine days ago. A poor man. He was struggling to breathe. But he always had a Bible in his hand. He reads it to the patients who are dying and reads them quickly. He places the Bible in the hands of some and we looked at it intently. Two of my colleagues have passed away. Some are sick. In total despair. We have been mentally and physically whole. We see this at this point. Now we agree. As human beings, we have reached our limits. There is nothing we can do except increase the death toll of the people we care about. We began to notice his work. We begin to feel that God begins where man ends. Slowly we approached the priest; We started talking slowly. Truth be told, we who were atheists until yesterday, now pray to God for peace. Pray for us to help care for the sick. The courage that was supposed to be lost has somehow returned. We are more energetic now. Yesterday, that seventy-five-year-old priest died. That means 120 deaths in three weeks. He helped to give us the peace we never expected in just nine days, when all hope was shattered. Remembering that we were helped by his weakness…the good shepherd went to the Lord. …Now I realize I am nothing on this earth. But I will live like that priest until my last breath for others. I am happy to have returned to my God when my loved ones were suffering and dying around me.”
