In the face of the contingency we live in, we extend an invitation to all the faithful to join in prayer. Today, we’re invited to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for Protection from the Coronavirus.
Prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for Protection from the Coronavirus
From the Jefferson City Diocese
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, we entrust ourselves to you, Healer of the Sick.
At the foot of the cross, you united yourself with steadfast faith, to Jesus’ pain.
Patroness of the Diocese of Jefferson City, you know what we need.
We are certain of the power of your intercession, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, the joy and feasting we had before might return.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us. He who taught us to “love one another, as I have loved you” took our suffering upon Himself and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
Bring under your mantel of protection all who provide care for the sick and minister to their needs, as your Son implores us to do for one another.
V. We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
R. Do not despise our pleas and deliver us from every danger,
O glorious and blessed Virgin Mary. Amen.
