Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic
Oh Mary, you always brighten 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 Jesus’ pain
while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother, you know what we need,
and we are confident you will provide for us
as at Cana in Galilee.
Intercede for us with your Son Jesus,
the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill,
for those who are vulnerable,
and for those who have died.
Intercede also for those charged with
protecting the health and safety of others and for those
who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will
of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who took upon himself our suffering and carried our sorrows,
so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection.
Under thy protection we seek refuge,
O Holy Mother of God.
In our needs, despise not our petitions,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious blessed Virgin, Amen.
