Our Lady is always Health of the Sick and Comfort of the Afflicted.
As we pray today especially for the sick, let us bring to Her our every need.
Our Lady had a clear message in mind when she appeared in Lourdes; she wanted to remind the world of the need for conversion and penance. She wished also to remind us that all have been redeemed by Christ's sacrifice on Calvary.
Today once again we ask Our Blessed Lady's help in all the circumstances of life.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
