The Most Reverend Zygmunt Zimowski, President of the Pontifical Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers, on January 29, 2013, presented the Holy Father’s Message for the 21st World Day of the Sick, which is celebrated on February 11, 2013. Entitled “Go and do likewise” (Luke 10, 37), Pope Benedict XVI proposes in his message a reflection on the example of the Good Samaritan. “The Gospel parable recounted by Saint Luke is part of a series of scenes and events taken from daily life by which Jesus helps us to understand the deep love of God for every human being, especially those afflicted by sickness or pain,” the Message states.
