Coronavirus Prayer to Our Blessed Mother

O Mary, you always shine on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We rely on you, Health of the Sick, who at the Cross united with Jesus’ pain, kept steadfast your faith. You know what we need. We are sure that you will provide for us, as you did at Cana of Galilee, so that joy and celebration might return after this trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do what we are told by Jesus, who has taken our suffering upon Himself and has burdened Himself with 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 despise the pleas of we who are in trial, and free us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
