Corona Virus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, during your earthly ministry, at your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now in the midst of the global spread of the corona virus, that we may experience your healing love.
Give leaders of nations and communities the foresight to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the people they are meant to serve. Give them the wisdom to invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or prevent future outbreaks.
Grant to all peoples the grace to respect the measures suggested that may curtail the spread of this virus.
We ask this in your Holy name. Amen
ENTRANCE ANTIPHON: Within your will, O Lord, all things are established and there is none that can resist your will. For you have made all things, the heaven and the earth, and all that is held within the circle of heaven; you are the Lord of all.
FIRST READING: Isaiah 5:1-7.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 80.
RESPONSE: The vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel.
You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. It stretched out its branches to the sea; to the River it stretched out its shoots. ℟
Then why have you broken down its walls? It is plucked by all who pass by the way. It is ravaged by the boar of the forest, devoured by the beasts of the field. ℟
God of hosts, turn again, we implore; look down from heaven and see. Visit this vine and protect it, the vine your right hand has planted, the son of man you have claimed for yourself. ℟
And we shall never forsake you again; give us life that we may call upon your name. O Lord God of hosts, bring us back; let your face shine forth, and we shall be saved. ℟
SECOND READING: Philippians 4:6-9.
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION: Alleluia, alleluia! I chose you from the world that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, says the Lord. Alleluia.
GOSPEL: Matthew 21:33-43.
COMMUNION ANTIPHON: The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to the soul that seeks him.
