Prayer to Mary during Coronavirus Pandemic

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. 

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, 

who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm. 

You, Salvation of Your People, know what we need, 

and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, 

we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. 

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father 

and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings 

and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen. 

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. 

Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, 

but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen. 

 

Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street.

When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party.

Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the bar, 

the small talk, the photos close to each other.

We think about when it will be all a memory 

but normality will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift.

We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us.

Every second will be precious.

Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter.

We will go back to laughing together. 

Strength and courage“.
