Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network

In this video from the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network, Pope Francis recognizes that many people experience mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion. He asks us to strive to be close to those who are exhausted, to those who are desperate, without hope. To not forget that together with the indispensable guidance of a psychologist, which is useful and effective, Jesus' words also help.

MORE INFORMATION

We entrust our mission to Our Lady. Our Lady of Lourdes is a special patroness for healing. May Our Lady guide us so that those who live with a mental illness will know that they are surrounded by her and her Son’s healing presence and remember that they are never alone.
