Corona Virus Prayer

A Coronavirus Prayer

Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.


Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.

Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbors from helping one another.

Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders.

Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow.

Be with those who have died from the virus. May they be at rest with you in your eternal peace.

Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry and grieve, defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.


Kerry Weber,

Pope Francis Prayer

“This evening, let us pray together, entrusting ourselves to the intercession of St. Joseph, the guardian of the Holy Family and the guardian of every family.

The carpenter from Nazareth knew the precariousness and bitterness [of life] and the concern for tomorrow, but he also knew how to walk in the darkness of certain moments, by letting himself be always guided without reserve by the will of God.

St. Joseph, we ask for your intercession to God to protect this nation and enlighten those responsible for the common good, so that they may know—like you—how to care for the persons entrusted to their responsibility.

Grant the intelligence of knowledge to all who are researching for adequate means [to ensure] the health and the physical well-being of their brothers and sisters.

Sustain those who are spending themselves to help the needy: the volunteers, the nurses, the doctors, who are in the front line in curing the sick, even at risk to their own lives.


Bless the church, starting with her ministers, and make her the sign and instrument of your light and goodness.

Accompany families with your silent prayer and build harmony between parents and children, and especially the youngest ones.

Preserve the elderly from loneliness, and [ensure] that no one falls into the desperation of abandonment or discouragement.

Console the most fragile, encourage the waverer, intercede for the poor.

St. Joseph, together with the Virgin Mary, plead with the Lord so that he may free the world from every form of pandemic.”

Pope Francis

Spiritual Communion

Catholics are encouraged to make a spiritual communion when they are justifiably prevented from participating in Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday.

Making A Spiritual Communion

Make the Sign of the Cross over yourself and Pray: I confess to Almighty God and to you my brothers and sisters that I have greatly sinned in my thought and my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

If you want you can read from one of the Gospels in your bible or read the readings of the day from a hand missal or on line at http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/

Spend a moment offering prayers of petition for those the world, for those you love or for those you know are in need.


Pray the “Our Father”

Pray: Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us (grant us peace). (3x)

Pray: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, But only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

Close your eyes, picture Jesus standing next to you and pray:
Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to possess you within my soul. Since I am unable now to receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart, I embrace you as already being there, and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. My beloved Jesus, inflame this heart of mine, so that it may be always and all on fire for you.”

Pray the “Hail Mary.”
