Health of the Sick Prayer

Hello Friends. We are living in uncertain times, not really knowing what will come with the next news broadcast, how our lives will be changed due to this Covid-19 pandemic.  As Catholics, we are all called to do our part.  The reaction for most of us would be to attend Mass more often, to spend time in Eucharistic adoration, to go to confession...but due to social distancing this has become impossible.  To aid in our desire to do as Jesus taught us, to care for the sick and to love our neighbour, our Pope has composed a prayer to Our Mother, asking Her protection during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.  You will find this prayer below.  Please feel free to copy the prayer, and pray it often.  If you are unsure how to copy the prayer and print it yourself, please feel free to email me, and I will email you a Word document that you can print at home.

Blessings to you and your family,

Health of the Sick Prayer

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.  At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.  You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.

We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.  Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.  Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
