My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You
above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive
You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You
were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated
from You. Amen.
Diocesan Coronavirus Prayer
Loving and healing God, we, the people of the Diocese of Cloyne turn to you in prayer,
confident that you are with us and with all people in every moment. We stand before
you as people of hope, trusting in your care and protection. May your faithful love
support us and soothe the anxiety of our hearts.
Generous God, fill us with compassion and concern for others, young and old, that
we may look after one another in these challenging days. Bring healing to those who
are sick with the virus and be with their families. May those who have died rest in
your eternal embrace. Comfort their family and friends. Strengthen and protect all
medical professionals caring for the sick and all who work in our medical facilities. Give
wisdom to leaders in healthcare and governance that they may make the right decisions
for the well-being of people. We pray in gratitude for all those in our country who
will continue to work in the days ahead in so many fields of life for the sake of
us all. Bless them and keep them safe.
O God of creation and life, we place ourselves in your protection. May the mantle of
your peace enfold us this day and tomorrow. St. Patrick, pray for us. St. Brigid,
pray for us. St Colman, pray for us. St Fanahan, pray for us. May all the Saints
of God, pray for us. Amen.
