A Prayer to Our Blessed Mother Mary
Mary, of all women, you are the most blessed. Our Lady, Health of the Sick, we look to you during this time of a global pandemic for the comfort of your love. We pray for your intercession on behalf of all who are suffering from the Novel Coronavirus – COVID-19. Our Lady of Sorrows; console all who have lost their loved ones. Pray for the souls of those who have died from the disease, and for our own healing needs.
So many have trusted in your intercession and no one has ever done so in vain. Our hopes shall not be confounded. Take all those who need to provide essential services and cannot work from home under your protection; embrace all who are suffering emotionally and physically that they may return to good health under your tender care.
Come, Lord Jesus; bring us out of this darkness and pour out your healing light upon us. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Mary, Queen of Families and of all Nations, pray for the comfort and healing of your children. Amen.
A Traditional Catholic Prayer to Mary
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come; before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
"Mother of Mercy"
I am the Mother of Mercy, full of love; I am the special joy of the Saints, because I am good. Come to me, you who love me, and from my wealth of consolations you will be filled, because I am good.
- from "The Imitation of Mary" by Thomas A Kempis
