Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes

Mother of Mercy, you are the healer of the sick,
the refuge of sinners, and comforter of the afflicted.
Cure those who suffer from ailments of the body and spirit.
We pray in a special way for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
Comfort those who are plagued by the disease.
Give your healing hand to the doctors and nurses who care for patients with COVID.
Protect the essential and frontline workers.
And bless those who have lost someone to the pandemic.


Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever
