Prayer to Our Lady for protection from the Coronavirus

We pray today for those who are self- isolating,
and possibly are overwhelmed with loneliness.

And for those whose burden is lighter at this time,
but nevertheless heavy.

We are asked to stay in as an act of charity
towards the weak and vulnerable.

If we make that our delight, our burden will be lighter,
and we can say with Mary,

‘My soul glorifies the Lord,
and my Spirit rejoices in God my Saviour’.

Prayer In Time of Pandemic

This Prayer is taken for the special Mass to be said, ‘In Time of Pandemic’. Fr Peter and I celebrate Mass for you all every morning and we remember you in our prayer.

Almighty and eternal God, our refuge in every danger,
to whom we turn in our distress;
in faith we pray
look with compassion on the afflicted, grant eternal rest to the dead,
comfort to mourners, healing to the sick, peace to the dying,
strength to healthcare workers, wisdom to our leaders
and the courage to reach out to all in love,
so that together we may give glory to your holy name.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

May I thank all our parishioners and members of our local community who are continuing to work to keep our essential services going, and those who are volunteering to bring food and essentials to our elderly who are isolated.

May God bless you all
