FEBRUARY 2017

TWENTY-FIFTH WORLD DAY OF THE SICK 2017

The 11th February will be the 25th World Day of the Sick. We all know sick people and we may be sick ourselves. The 11th of February, Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, is an occasion to celebrate with our Blessed Lady, to pray for the sick and to thank all those in the nursing profession, as also families who care for their loved ones at home, who give themselves tirelessly with great commitment.

As Little Sisters of the Poor, with our Staff, Associates and Volunteers, we have received a vocation and a special calling to care for the elderly sick. Our Mother Foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan who responded to God’s call, giving her own bed to an elderly blind and sick old lady, gave a witness of  great kindness and asked us to: Be kind, especially with the infirm. Love them well … Oh yes! Be kind. It is a great grace God is giving you. In serving the aged, it is he himself whom you are serving.” Jeanne Jugan

For this year’s ‘World Day of the Sick’, Pope Francis gave the theme of our Blessed Lady’s: Amazement at what God has accomplished: ‘The Almighty has done great things for me….’” (Lk 1:49).
