For the Pastoral Care of the Sick – Monthly Prayer

Jul 3, 2024 | Blog Articles, Prayer of the Month

All-merciful Father, What a great mystery, the fragility of the body, the sickness that weakens us! How often we want to escape from this pain because we do not want to suffer or see suffering! We know that nothing makes sense without you, and that everything can be an occasion of grace, if it is with You. That is why, Lord, in the midst of sickness we want to be signs of compassion bringing strength to our brothers and sisters, with the grace of the anointing of the sick. We ask that your Holy Spirit renew in your entire Church and in our hearts, the profound meaning of this sacrament; so that we may accept it as a gift and task in the care of those who are sick, so that they may attain the peace and healing that you grant them. Amen.
