World Day of the Sick: Message of Pope Francis

The Pope tells the ill how Jesus looks at a “wounded humanity” with eyes “that gaze into the heart of each person.”

His Gaze Embraces Everyone in Their Entirety

That gaze, he underscored, is not one of indifference, but rather one which embraces “people in their entirety, each person in his or her health condition, discarding no one, but rather inviting everyone to share in his life and to experience his tender love.”

The Jesuit Pope said Jesus has these feelings since He Himself “became frail, endured human suffering and received comfort from His Father.”

“What is needed,” the Jesuit Pope observed, “is a personalized approach to the sick, not just of curing but also of caring, in view of an integral human healing.”
