World Day of the Sick
World Day of The Sick will be celebrated on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, Feb. 11, 2020. Ultimately, Catholic health care ministry is an activity of the whole Church – responding to human suffering and caring for the well-being of the whole person. Together, we build a faith community that is continuing the healing ministry of Jesus.
Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of the Sick focuses on the scriptural theme: “Come to me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28). In his 2020 message, Pope Francis urges that “what is needed is a personalized approach to the sick not just of curing, but also of caring in view of an integral human healing.” Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of the Sick 2020 is available at the Vatican website: World Day of Sick 2020 – Papal message LINK
