World Day of the Sick

Today is the 15th Annual World Day of the Sick. Pope Benedict has dedicated this day to all who are sick, especially those with terminal illnesses.

Prayer for the Sick
(From the Catholic Community Forum)
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the sick,
we turn to you in this time of illness.
O dearest comforter of the troubled,
alleviate our worry and sorrow with your gentle love,
and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.
Dear God, we place our worries in your hands.
We place our sick under your care and humbly ask that you
restore your servant to health again.
Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your will
and know that whatever you do,
you do for the love of us.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
