COVID-19 Novena

Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask you to guard and protect us from Coronavirus COVID-19 and all serious illness. For all that have died from it, have mercy; for those that are ill now, bring healing. For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them; for medical caregivers helping the sick, strengthen and shield them. For those working to contain the spread, grant them success; for those afraid, grant peace. May your precious blood be our defense and salvation. By your grace, may you turn the evil of disease into moments of consolation and hope. May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness. We abandon ourselves to your infinite mercy. Amen. 

O Mary, Mother of God, through the years your people have called on your intercession in times of epidemic and illness. We call on you now, as our mother, and ask that you pray for us, that we might find healing and refuge, and a quick end to this time of illness. Be to us truly Our Lady of Prompt Succor and draw us ever closer to your Son, the source of all healing and consolation. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. Amen.
