Payer to Mary for an end to the Coronavirus Pandemic BY POPE FRANCIS

O Mary, you shine continuously
on our journey as a sign of salvation
and hope. We entrust ourselves to you,
Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated
in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide,
so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after
this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the
Father’s will and to do what
Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself,
and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the
Resurrection. Amen
We seek refuge
under your protection,
O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas –
we who are put to the test –
and deliver us from every danger,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.
