Mary Salus infirmorum 12 June in St. Peter’s

san pietroOn 10-12 June 2016 Pope Francis will celebrate the Jubilee of the Sick and the Disabled in Rome, sensitising all those people who live the experience of illness and cultivate sensitivity to care. The event will witness the involvement of many faithful from all over the world.

On Sunday 12 June, the venerated picture of Our Lady Salus infirmorum, which has been kept for centuries in our Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Campo Marzio, Rome, will be on show in St. Peter’s Square during the celebration of the Eucharist presided over by the Holy Father.

In the thinking of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation which recently sent the request to us, the veneration of this Marian icon invokes the mercy of God expressed through the tenderness of Mary, which we Camillian religious have cultivated and disseminated since the beginning of the foundation of our Order specifically in line with the spirit of St. Camillus.
