Our Lady of Lourdes

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and World Day of the Sick.

There are so many who are hurting among us; so many who are sick. Let us pray fervently for their recovery and offer up our own sufferings for all those who need us.

Our Lady of Lourdes, our Mother, lead us in prayer to the Father for all those who are sick and suffering today. Open our hearts to help all those we come in contact with and help us to use our own sufferings to bring grace and healing to ourselves and others.

In Christ's name we pray.

~Amen

Timely Feast Day. I have been praying for all of those I know who are sick and/or experiencing tough times. Thank you for including us (especially my dd) in your prayers.

You're welcome. I definitely am praying.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"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
