O Mary, Seat of Wisdom, intercede as our Mother
for all the sick and for those who care for them!
Grant that, through our service of our suffering neighbours,
and through the experience of suffering itself,
we may receive and cultivate true wisdom of heart.
(Pope Francis, Message for the 23rd World Day of the Sick, 2015)
