Click to Pray During the Sunday Angelus prayer in St. Peter’s Square in January, Pope Francis unveiled his very own user profile in Click To Pray, the official app of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network. Click To Pray ( is a platform that invites men and women from around the world, to accompany the Pope in a mission of compassion for the world. It has a website and a mobile app, both for Android and iOS, with its social networks, available in six languages. Click To Pray has three main sections: ‘Pray with the Pope’, with the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions for the challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church; ‘Pray every day’, and ‘Pray with the network’ that is a space where users (Pope Francis among them) can share their prayers with the others. Pope’s Francis own profile ( can be found clicking on the Pope Francis button at the ‘Pray with the Network’ section.

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and
resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? The love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.
Henri Nouwen

Reflection for World Day of Prayer for the Sick 11th February
The Church’s maternal vocation to the needy and to the sick has found concrete expression throughout the two thousand years of her history in an impressive series of initiatives on behalf of the sick. This history of dedication must not be forgotten. It continues to the present day throughout the world. In countries where adequate public health care systems exist, the work of Catholic religious congregations and dioceses and their hospitals is aimed not only at providing quality medical care, but also at putting the human person at the centre of the healing process, while carrying out scientific research with full respect for life and for Christian moral values. In countries where health care systems are inadequate or non-existent, the Church seeks to do what she can to improve health, eliminate infant mortality and combat widespread disease. The image of the Church as a ‘field hospital’ that welcomes all those wounded by life is a very concrete reality, for in some parts of the world, missionary and diocesan hospitals are the only institutions providing necessary care to the population.
Pope Francis (Message for 2018)
