Mar 30, 2023 | In the News, Media, News Releases

In May 2020, Pope Francis published a prayer to Our Lady for the sick. Today, we can pray in a particular way for Pope Francis:


O Mary,You shine continuously on our journeyas a sign of salvation and hope.We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,who, at the foot of the cross,were united with Jesus’ suffering,and persevered in your faith.

“Protectress of the Roman people”,you know our needs,and we know that you will provide,so that, as at Cana in Galilee,joy and celebration may returnafter this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love,to conform ourselves to the will of the Fatherand to do what Jesus tells us.For he took upon himself our suffering,and burdened himself with our sorrowsto bring us, through the cross,to the joy of the Resurrection.Amen.

We fly to your protection,O Holy Mother of God;Do not despise our petitionsin our necessities,but deliver us alwaysfrom every danger,O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.
