In the story it shows that Dr. Lazaro is emotionally and objective detached, as required by his profession.
As a doctor he inherit the power to either save or heal the patient and allow the effects of disease to snuff life are perhaps the reason why he had emotionally detached.
In this case it’s also one thing why Dr. Lazaro loses his faith to God, especially because of certain critical events in his life.
Not only this could be the factor why he loses his faith, as a doctor, exposed to seeing patients undergo traumatic pain and deep suffering, that make his feeling numb.
It shows how weak he is as a doctor that he could not do anything in order to save the lives of his patients, and even more when his son committed suicide and he even done anything in order to save the life of his son.
As human we always tend to blame God on the things that happen in our lives especially the negative one and it usually leads to lose our faith to God.
The things that we could not handle in our life are the reasons why we do not trust God, we think that God is punishing us because of our sins, but there’s a reason why these things are happening to our lives.
In our life there are things that might not happen the way we want to be. Every circumstance, situations in our lives has a reason. We should take it positively and Godly. God knows what is best for us even though it hurt us. In the story it seems that time those not exist for Dr Lazaro, for time to exist there must be a change (cf. Br. Ryan Oliver Bautista SDB, Good Night Talk).
At the end of the story time already exist in the life of Dr Lazaro as his son Ben open his faith to God again. In our life God will use an instrument that will represent him to be our guide and help in every struggle in our life. God will never leave us and we will never walk alone because God is always there for us.
Time is the most important thing in the world that you can give to your family and to your love
