Prayer to St. Francis Xavier Seelos for an end to COVID-19
you infused Blessed Francis Seelos with the gift of your healing.
By the help of his prayers,
sustain all doctors, nurses and hospital staff
in their ministry of care to those afflicted with the virus.
Protect them as they answer the call to serve their sisters and brothers.
May his loving compassion for victims of sickness be ours. May we, like him,
search and find you in those who suffer during this time of crisis.
Grant that we may they learn from the example of Father Seelos
and gain comfort from his patient endurance, hope in the midst of suffering
and joy in the practice of the kingdom,
where you Father, Son and Holy Spirit reign for ever and ever.
