— St. Teresa of Avila

 

Prayerful Resources

Coronavirus Novena




While we face the coronavirus pandemic, let us turn to the face of God in prayer and ask for His healing, His help and His protection. Let us also turn to and ask for the intercession of our Most Blessed Mother Mary, our hope in times of crises and of all the saints.

During this novena we will be specifically asking the intercession of these saints: The Fourteen Holy Helpers, those who lived during the time of the plague; St. Anthony the Great, patron of those affected by infectious diseases; St. Edmund, patron for victims of pandemics; St. Damien of Molokai, who put himself at risk to minister to those with leprosy; St. Rocco, who is venerated for his prayers for those suffering from infectious diseases; St. Joseph, patron of the dying; St. Jude and St. Rita, patrons of impossible causes; St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, who founded hospitals dedicated to caring for the sick; and the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, under the titles of: The Immaculate Conception, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception, Saint Mary of the Assumption, Mary Mother of Peace, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Our Lady of Good Counsel, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Mother of Sorrows, Saint Mary Refuge of Sinners, Saint Mary Star of the Sea, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Wilmington, and Our Lady Un-Doer of Knots.

Let us pray for all who are affected, for all who are sick and suffering, for all those who work in the medical profession, and for those who have died as well as for their grieving family members. Let also pray for teachers and first responders and for all those who risk their lives during these times. Most of all let us pray for a swift end to the Covid19 pandemic.
