Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Health of the Sick, pray for us

Jacques-Louis David
St Roch Asking the Virgin Mary to Heal Victims of the Plague

Lord, you desired your Son, Jesus, to have compassion and heal the sick. Through the intercession of our Patroness, Mary Health of the Sick, we beseech you for the grace to care for our suffering brothers and sisters, being true to our name as Servants of Mary. Make us instruments of salvation and peace, of consolation and love, imitating our Mother Foundress. May the sick be comforted with your divine grace and united with your Son. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.


  1. Thank you for offering up that beautiful prayer Barbara!

  2. I appreciate all of your May posts :)

    Hope your knee is doing a bit better. I have been praying for you.

    1. Thanks, Patty. I saw the orthopedist this week and he drew off 45cc of blood. Ouch! Before he put the needle in, he said if it was clear it was probably just a sprain, but if it was blood, I tore something, so bad news. MRI this week (yikes -- $$$) and then I see him Thursday for results. It's feeling a little better but I haven't lost that feeling that it's going to give on me -- slightly scary. I so appreciate your prayers. You are so kind!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
