Prayer for healing and end to Pandemic
The following prayers and resources
can be used during the Coronavirus pandemic:
Prayer to the Most Holy Redeemer
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, embolden me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within thy wounds hide me.
Never permit me to be parted from you.
From the evil Enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me.
and bid me come to thee,
that with your saints I may praise thee
for age upon age. Amen.
Pope Francisí Prayer to Mary
during the coronavirus pandemic
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesusí pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial,
but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
PRAYER FOR HEALING
Almighty and ever-living God, we worship and adore you.
In faith, we come to you asking for mercy and forgiveness
for the sins we have committed against you and your creation.
In this time of anxiety and distress,
we lift up to you the coronavirus situation throughout the world.
We beg you to halt the spread of this disease
and to grant healing and comfort to those afflicted.
Please cover everyone with the Precious Blood of your Son, Jesus
and protect all of us from any infection and harm.
Lord Jesus, we beseech you to grace our leaders and medical experts
with wisdom and knowledge
to combat the spread of the virus and to find a cure for it.
Holy Spirit, please breathe peace and new life into everyone.
May you grace us with a strong sense of social responsibility,
to be prudent and considerate in our actions.
Bless all people to work together as one family of God
and to be compassionate to one another.
We believe in you, we trust you, and we place all our hope in you.
Mary, our Mother, we seek your intercession
for us, our loved ones, our communities
and everyone in this world. Amen.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
(St. Alphonsus Liguori)
(This is a simple and loving act of Spiritual Communion we are called to make
in these times, while we are unable to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist)
Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness
and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts,
by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan, and all the evil spirits
who prowl the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Holy mary, mother of god,
st. Michael and holy angels,
Pray for us
