Prayer against Corona Virus

 

Heavenly Father, Loving and merciful God, we worship and adore You. In faith, we come before You asking for mercy and forgiveness for our sins against You and Your creation.

 

In this time of anxiety and distress, we lift up to You the COVID-19 situation throughout the world.
Abba Father, 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, especially those in the medical field, from any infection and harm.

 

Lord Jesus, we beseech You to grace government leaders and medical experts with wisdom and knowledge to combat the spread of COVID-19 and to find a cure for it. 

 

Holy Spirit Lord, please breathe peace and new life into everyone. May You grace us with a strong sense of social responsibility to do the necessary, and 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.

 

Most Holy Trinity, we believe in You and we place all our hope in You. You are our strength and our shield; in You our hearts trust; so we are helped, and our hearts exult, and with our song we give thanks to You.
(Psalm 28:7)

 

Immaculate Conception, Mary our Mother, we seek your intercession for us, our loved ones, our communities and everyone in this world.

 

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, our Messiah and King, we trust in You. (X3)
Amen.

Announcements

For the past few weeks, we have been concerned with the health of those already infected by the COVID-19 virus throughout the world and in our back yard.
 
As we deal with this challenge, the Diocese of Montreal has requested that we suspend Catechism classes and remind our community that we need to maintain solidarity, take proper care of our body, without forgetting our heart and soul.
 
With the suspension of Catechism classes, we encourage everyone to exercise our faith and take care of the soul by praying at home and by reciting the Rosary with the family, in small groups and at church. https://www.ewtn.com/legacy/devotionals/prayers/rosary/how_to.htm
 

Let us not lose focus during this time of Lent which leads to Easter and let us not lose sight that Jesus constantly draws near to us.

Find time to meditate on the Sunday Readings with your children, gather your family and talk about the Gospel. Share your faith experience and how GOD is present to you with them and with friends, especially in the midst of a crisis.

Remember, that Jesus said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them" (Mt. 18:20). Remember as well that our church is more than a building, it is our community.

As we pray for each other, let us ask God for the graces required to remain calm, to shower us with faith and hope.
