Facing down the coronavirus while building up the spirits of the medical heroes are hospital chaplains like Father Bryan Carney.

The priest from Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament In Bayside, Queens, had been on the frontlines at Flushing Hospital, until a pre-existing medical condition forced him out. 

He believes his condition has been made worse by stress from the outbreak, but still, Fr. Bryan is keeping close to Christ during this outbreak.

He joins Currents News to speak about the conditions at Flushing Hospital, his own health and why he’s fighting to get back to the hospital.
