PRAYERS FROM POPE FRANCIS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS -

O Mary, 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 the 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 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 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, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
