GOD OF HEALING AND COMPASSION,

You shower us with your infinite care,

and comfort all in pain and affliction.

LOOK WITH ABUNDANT MERCY ON ALL WHO SUFFER

in body, mind or spirit, Grant healing and hope

to the sick, the wounded and the dying

in their darkest hours, so they may witness the power

of Your Healing Presence in the world.

WE THANKS YOU, GRACIOUS GOD,

for all those who have contributed to the mission

of Catholic health care for more than 200 years in the United States.

These are the women and men who

inspire and inform the work we do every day.

SEND YOUR MERCIFUL LOVE AND EMPOWERING PRESENCE

to all who continue working to alleviate the suffering

of the sick, the lonely and the broken- hearted, wherever they may be.

Sustain us, Your ministers of compassion and healing,

in our work in the world as we continue Your mission of love and healing.

MAY WE BE THE FACE OF YOUR SON, JESUS, WHO SAID,

“Come to me all who labor and are burdened

and you will find rest for your souls,

for my yoke is easy and my burden light.”

May all who work in health care and all those who suffer

with family and loved ones who are ill

feel their burdens lightened through the intercession of our prayers.

WE ASK THIS, ON THE WORLD DAY OF THE SICK,our-lady-of-lourdes

through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes,

whose feast we celebrate today,

and in the name of your Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit,

now and forever.

AMEN
