Children must be FROM FATHER BARNHILL The Vatican announced the theme for the 2015 Day of the Sick: “I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame” (Book of Job 29:15). Pope Francis’ document turns his attention to the sick and those who provide them care and treatment. The Holy Father writes of those who care for the sick, “They are close to the sick in need of constant care and help in washing, dressing, and eating. This service, especially when it is protracted, can become tiring and burdensome. It is relatively easy to help someone for a few days but it is difficult to look after a person for months or even years, in some cases when he or she is no longer capable of expressing gratitude. And yet, what a great path of sanctification this is! In those difficult moments we can rely in a special way on the closeness of the Lord, and we become a special means of support for the Church’s mission.” Pope Francis goes on to write, “Occasionally our world forgets the special value of time spent at the bedside of the sick, since we are in such a rush; caught as we are in a frenzy of doing, of producing, we forget about giving ourselves freely, taking care of others, being responsible for others. Behind this attitude there is often a lukewarm faith which has forgotten the Lord’s words: “You did it unto me” (Mattew 25:40).
