2010-02-05

The pope’s message for World Day of the Sick, titled "The Church at the service of love for the suffering" stresses the need to serve those who are sick, out of love.  

Benedict XVI made a special call to priests who work in hospitals. He encouraged them to help heal the sick, their wounds and their spirit.

For World Day of the Sick, doctors, volunteers, nurses and chaplains will gather from February 9th to 11th in Rome to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers. During the 3 day conference, there will be meetings and exhibitions that will help them understand the pain of those who are suffering.

Benedict XVI will close the events with a Mass on February 11, the day of Our Lady of Lourdes in the Vatican. Relics of St. Bernadette of Lourdes will be on display during the ceremony.


A day meant to encourage health care workers so they can provide quality service to patients and respect them up until their final moments.
