St. John of God is also remembered as a patron saint of those who care for the sick. Pray for those who care for the sick today.
Lord Jesus, our brother,
you showed your compassion for the sick
when you reached out in love to them.
We praise you for the saving love
that is entrusted among those who care for the sick.
Conform them more and more to your image,
that they may be your healing touch to the sick,
and share the peace
of your Holy Spirit with all they meet.
Glory and praise to you, Christ Jesus,
the Incarnation of the Father's love,
you are Lord forever and ever.
