World Day of the Sick

Since 1992, the Catholic Church has celebrated World Day of the Sick on February 11th — the day on which the church commemorates the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes — under the sponsorship of the Pontifical Council for Health Pastoral Care.

World Day of the Sick has three consistent themes. First, it reminds the faithful to pray intensely and sincerely for those who are sick. Second, the celebration invites Christians to reflect on and respond to human suffering. And third, this day recognises and honours all persons who work in health care and serve as caregivers.
