Coronavirus resources - Maryknoll Lay Missioners

These times of global crisis, uncertainty and worry around the coronavirus invite us to a wider communal response of solidarity – beyond our homes and hometowns — so that no one is isolated even amidst the self-containing or quarantines.

We invite you to join us in this prayer, adapted from a message by Father Joseph McShane, SJ of Fordham University:

God of all mercies, grant:
To those of us gathered here, safety and good health;
To those afflicted with COVID-19, swift healing;
To the frightened, courage;
To the dying, comfort;
To the dead, eternal life;
To health-care providers, strength and stamina; To our leaders, wisdom and compassion;

To our nation, unity of purpose;
To the Church, the grace to serve the suffering selflessly;
To all believers, strong faith in Your presence;
To the whole human family, unity of heart; and
To us, your servants, the reward of knowing that we are doing Your will when we spend ourselves in loving service of others.

May the God of all consolation walk with us through these difficult times.
We ask this through Jesus, now and forever.
