Prayer Against Coronavirus
Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask you to guard and protect us from Coronavirus COID-19 and from all serious illness. For all those who have died from it, have mercy; for those who are ill now, bring healing. For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them; for medical caregivers helping the sick, strengthen and shield them. For those working to contain the spread, grant them success; for those afraid, grant peace. May your precious blood be our defense and our salvation. By your grace, may you turn the evil of disease into moments of consolation and hope. May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness. We abandon ourselves to your infinite mercy.
Amen. — Pedro de la Cruz
While we cannot be together in many ways right now, our prayers and hearts unite us to the Body of Christ. We will be working to put many of our devotions online for you to access anytime, and we welcome any prayer requests you have:
