Let us entrust to the Virgin Mary our trials and tribulations,
together with our joys and consolations.
Let us beg her to turn her eyes of mercy towards us,
especially in times of pain, and make us worthy of beholding,
today and always, the merciful face of her Son Jesus!
(Pope Francis, Message for the 24th World Day of the Sick, 2016)
