The Holy Father’s tweet this morning:
“To all who are sick, do not lose hope, especially when your suffering is at its worst. Christ is near you.”
I spent most of last week and this past weekend, resting. I’ve been sick with some sort of flu like virus and am cautiously hopeful that I am getting better. Being sick can be very demoralizing and discouraging and I am reminded why visiting the sick is a corporal work of mercy. Illnesses are tedious and trying on both patient and caregiver. My sickness is small and I will recover soon but so many suffer ongoing illnesses. Pray for them and visit them if you can. Suffer with them by tolerating them and being patient.
