“Dear brothers and sisters who are ill, your sickness makes you in a particular way one of those “who labour and are burdened”, and thus attract the eyes and heart of Jesus. In him, you will find light to brighten your darkest moments and hope to soothe your distress. He urges you: “Come to me”. In him, you will find strength to face all the worries and questions that assail you during this “dark night” of body and soul.” –Pope Francis
The World Day of the Sick honors those who struggle with various illnesses and sufferings. Let us continue to pray for health and healing to those in need, that Christ’s healing hand may rest upon them. This day is celebrated in conjunction with the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes.
