Let us pray together the prayer from our Holy Father to the Blessed Mother for her intercession:
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the crosss took part in Jesus' pain,
keeping your faith firm,
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Gaililee,
we may return to you and feasting
after this time of trail.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under you 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, O glorious
and blessed Virgin.
-Pope Francis March 2020
