The third annual archdiocesan World Day of the Sick Mass, presented by the Order of Malta, occurred on Feb. 8. Members of the Order of Malta assisted our Residents and Little Sisters as drivers, escorting them by car to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. It was a beautiful day and everyone arrived early to enjoy sack lunches on the patio of the Cathedral.
Bishop Edward Clark, a good friend or the Little Sisters (see photo), celebrated Mass and was assisted during the Rite of Anointing of the Sick by numerous priests. “So on this day, pray for those who are ill … but also remember to pray for the caregivers, for those who day after day care for the ill,” said Bishop Clark. “Let us pray certainly for miracles of the body, but most especially for miracles of the soul.”
