Next up in our series on the Corporal Works of Mercy: “Caring for the Sick.” On this episode, Bishop and Kyle talk about how February 11th is connected to this work of mercy. The date has special meaning for a couple of different reasons. First, it’s the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Hear more about the story of St. Bernadette, what happened at a grotto in Lourdes, France more than 150 years ago, and the healings that continue to happen there today. It’s also the World Day of the Sick…established by St. Pope John Paul II 30 years ago.
