The poor and the wretched I can handle, but the irksome?

“O God almighty and tender-hearted, . . .
“Forgive us, [we] who have disregarded the presence of your Christ in the poor, the wretched, and the troublesome [(molestis)]”.

Entreaties, Morning prayer, Second Monday of Lent, italics (and translation) mine.  Molestus:  annoying, bothersome, burdensome, difficult, grevious, incommodius, irksome, troublesome, vexing (and worse).
