PRAYER FOR CORONA VIRUS
we ask you to guard and protect us from
the Corona Virus 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.
AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present
in the Holy Eucharist. I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You
as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine,
all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine!

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St. Michael he Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Prayer for Vocations
Prayer for Vocations:
Lord Jesus, as you once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men,
let Your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come follow Me! Give young men
and women the grace of responding quickly to Your voice. Support our bishops,
priests, and consecrated people in their apostolic labour. Grant perseverance to
our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally
consecrated to Your service. Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness.
Lord, send workers to Your harvest and do not allow humanity to be lost for the
lack of pastors, missionaries, and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel.
Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say “yes”
to the Lord who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation.
