Litany in time of plague

The attached Litany is adapted from the Rituale Romanum ‘Procession in time of plague’.  I have asked my parishioners to pray this Litany every day while the Virus runs its course.  It is easy to get scared, and feel helpless, in times like these and we forget to our peril that God is in charge.  I commend it to you.


Let us pray.
Hear us, O God, our Savior, and by the prayers of glorious Mary, Mother of God, and ever

a Virgin, of St. Sebastian, your martyr, and of all the saints, deliver your people from your wrath, and in your bounty let them feel certain of your mercy. Lord, mercifully heed our supplications, and heal our infirmities of body and soul; so that knowing your forgiveness we may ever rejoice in your blessing. We beg you, Lord, to hear our sincere pleas, and graciously to avert this plague which afflicts us; so that mortal hearts may acknowledge that such scourges come from your wrath and cease only when you are moved to pity; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
