Make February the month of prayer for those who are sick and their caregivers, urges Catholic Health Association
The Catholic Health Association (CHA) of America has urged people to celebrate February as the month of prayers. On each day of the month, the CHA will be dedicating a prayer to those who are sick and their caregivers.

"With February 11, World Day of the Sick, as the centrepiece of this initiative, CHA will share a prayer a day for those who are sick between February 1-10. On February 11, our prayer will commemorate World Day of the Sick. Then, from February 12-28, CHA will share prayers for our members — the caregivers and leaders who answer God's call to foster healing, act with compassion and promote wellness for all," stated a CHA release.

One of the prayers of the month goes as follows:

"When they feel fragile and broken, remind them that you call them by name and hold them in the palm of your hand.

When they feel devalued, remind them that they are made in the image Jesus. When they are reminded of different times in the past, lead them to grow in the faith that you love them today, as they are, in the reality of their lives this day.

When they feel uncertain and fearful about the future, lead them to that perfect love which casts out all fear. When situations remind them not of what they can do, but of what they cannot do, remind them that love never fails."

The World Day of the Sick, an observation instituted by Pope John Paul II as a way for believers to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses coincides with the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes. The observance also provides an 'opportunity for those who serve in Catholic health ministry to reflect on caring for those who are sick as well as those who provide care to them'.
