Daily prayer online

World Day of the Sick

World Day of the Sick was launched by Pope John Paul II in 1992. He designated February 11, Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, to be an annual day of prayer and consideration of the sick and of those who care for them.  It is a day on which we reflect on the Christian meaning of illness, pain and suffering – whether we are healthy or not. People in the medical profession are invited through this day to recognise and value the spiritual dimension of their work.
