Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes – World Day for the Sick

World Day for the Sick takes place on 11th February. The day was introduced by St. Pope John Paul II to help us remember to pray for all those who are ill and for their caregivers. He chose this day because it coincides with the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes; a feast commemorating the appearances in 1858 of Our Lady to the young girl, Bernadette. Lourdes has been a site of pilgrimage, renowned for healing, ever since.
