A Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic

This prayer was adopted from one Pope Francis wrote. I encourage everyone to pray it and pray it often.

O 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 

sufferings and carried our sorrows, 

so as to lead us, through the Cross, 

to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen. 

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 and blessed Virgin. Amen.
