I’ve been blessed with good health throughout my life, though I have learned much as I watch people who suffer different kinds of illnesses and health-related hardships.

This week, in my column at Today’s Catholic Woman, I share my reflections on Mary’s title Health of the Sick.

As Health of the Sick, Mary suddenly becomes an answer to my own weakness in suffering.  She points heavenward and lets me in on the grace to use my suffering as a path to grow closer to God.  She takes a theory that might make me roll my eyes in the midst of sickness and she embodies it and lives it.  She makes it her very way of being.

Read the entire thing and let me know what this title inspires in you.
