Our Lady of Lourdes (OM)

World Day of Prayer for the Sick

1 Kings 8:22-23, 27-30; Psalm 84:3-5, 10-11; Mark 7:1-13

Bring hope!

The 1858 Lourdes apparition of Our Lady to 14-year old Bernadette Soubirous called for our love of God to be shown through greater care of the poor and sick. Her concern was primarily for the poverty and sickness of the human spirit that nullifies attempts to rid the world of physical hunger and disease.

Prayer: Mary, Mother, draw me closer to Jesus your Son that I might experience his healing touch and be rid of my selfishness. Guide my steps to where the need is greatest that I might serve with joy and bring hope to hurting hearts.
