Prayer for the Sick

O Beloved Catherine, through the power of my most compassionate Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I humbly beseech you to look with love and pity on …… who is ill at this time.

 

Stir up in me the same passion that impelled you to respond to the needs of your time.

 

Bless me with the sure knowledge of your presence and with a complete trust in your providence.

 

Use once again your spirit of compassion and your ardent desire to alleviate suffering and to restore …… to full health, if it is God’s holy will.

 

I ask this in the name of Jesus who lives and reigns with the Father in unity with the Holy Spirit.

 

Amen

-Catherine McAuley
