WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE SICK

Our Lady Of Lourdes

The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes is Tuesday February 11th. The World Day of the Sick was instituted by Saint John Paull II in 1992 and has three permanent themes.

  1. It reminds the faithful to pray intensely and sincerely for those who are sick.
  2. The celebration invites Christians to reflect and respond to human suffering.
  3. This day recognizes and honors all persons who word in healthcare and all who serve as caregivers.

"Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and to anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord." ...James 5:13

On Tuesday, February 11 all are invited to join us for a Holy Hour, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 215 Rebecca Street, Throop. In the context of Eucharistic Adoration, the Sacrament of the Sick will be celebrated. All who seek the comfort, grace and consolation of the Sacrament are invited to be anointed, as we pray for healing and strength for the members of our community. Those who seek healing, those who are praying for the sick, family members and friends, and care givers are encouraged to join us.

PRAYER FOR THE WORLD DAY OF THE SICK

God of wholeness, of space, time and light,

Your presence peers in all and overall events and experiences of life,

I come to pray,

For the most vulnerable among us- The broken in mind, body and spirit.

For them You have come to be most near. They are among Your chosen ones,

To manifest Your healing and saving powers- Of mercy, patience, and faithful endurance.

As on the Cross,

Through this, our humanity You took on, In love, for love.

Touch and make holy, their sufferings Breathe in them Your Spirit.

Immerse and wash through old cells, Your precious blood and water.

Hide and make as Your own, their wounds. Hear them when they cry out, "Jesus, remember me."

They bend, like bruised reeds, but not broken. Like the good thief Dismas, not spurned.

For in all.who is like You, O God of compassion?

"Your will be done."

A new morning is birthed.

Amen. Isabelita Boquiren BCC
