September: Our Lady of Sorrows
The month of September holds a special devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows, a title given to the Virgin Mary in recognition of her immense suffering and sorrow during the life and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This dedication serves as a reminder of Mary's unwavering faith and strength in the face of immense pain and loss. Throughout the month, Catholics honor Our Lady of Sorrows through prayers, reflections, and devotions, seeking her intercession and finding solace in her compassionate presence. September becomes a time to reflect on the sorrows and challenges we face in our own lives, and to turn to Mary as a source of comfort, guidance, and hope.
"The martyrdom of Mary was not caused by the executioner's sword, but by unspeakable sorrow of heart." - St. Jerome
"Mary, the Mother of Sorrows, is the Queen of martyrs, for her martyrdom surpassed that of all the martyrs." - St. Bonaventure

Healthcare workers deliver care and services to the sick and ailing either directly as doctors and nurses or indirectly as aides, helpers, laboratory technicians, and medical waste handlers. The nature of their job puts them at risk of catching communicable diseases including COVID-19.
We have created an alphabetical list of saints and their health care patronage.
