World Day of the Sick
“You received without payment; give without payment” (Mt 10:8)
In his message on the World Day of the Sick (February 11, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes) Pope Francis said that generously caring for the sick and the marginalized is the best way to combat a culture of waste and indifference that seeks to control and manipulate life.
On Monday, February 11, we had a special Mass celebrated by Fr. Brad Milunski, OFM Conv. in observance of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and World Day of the Sick. After his homily, Fr. Brad administered the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick to all who wished to receive it.
As Little Sisters we see the face of Jesus in all the elderly that we serve. It is our hope that our united efforts to serve the poor, the sick and the most vulnerable among us, lead others to believe in the power of God’s love at work in the world! May the world be able to say of us, “The believers are of one heart and mind … sharing everything they have” (cf. Acts 4:32).
