CWN Editor's Note: On September 18, Pope Francis received employees of the Vatican Pharmacy on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of its founding.

Pope Francis concluded with “a small piece of spiritual advice: every day, raise your eyes to the Crucifix, turning your gaze to God, pierced and wounded. The service you provide to the sick is a service rendered to him. And it is good to draw patience and benevolence from the heavenly Doctor, and the strength to love, without tiring. In his school, from the desk of the cross to the counter of the pharmacy, may you too be daily dispensers of mercy.”
