The Sick Are a Wealth for the Church

Pope: The Sick Are a Wealth for the Church
the Holy Father encouraged the sick persons present not to think of themselves “solely as the object of solidarity and charity”, but instead as “fully integrated in the life and the mission of the Church.”
“You have your place, a specific role in [all] ecclesial environments,” he said. “Your presence, [your] prayer, the daily offering of your sufferings in union with those of Jesus crucified for the salvation of the world [are] a spiritual resource, an asset to every Christian community. Do not be ashamed of being a precious treasure to the Church”.
