As the mother of Jesus, she would have definitely cared for him during the times that he was sick. She would have looked for ways to get a cure and looked after Jesus. And she still remains faithful to that motherly role up to this day. This time, for all of us.
As we share one body with Christ, so does he share to us Mary’s motherhood.
In this prayer of Pope Francis for Mary’s protection for us against the COVID-19, we are reminded that the Blessed Virgin is the “Help of the Sick”.
You always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of he Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother od Divinie Love, to confirm to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, Oh glorious and blessed Virgin.
