28 JANUARY, 2021. We have received the great news that some of our sisters have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination. This includes: our two sisters in New York, four of our sisters in nursing homes in California, one of our sisters in the Corpus Christi Convent in California, and over half of our sisters in the English Mission. In Ireland, our sisters in Kiltipper, Dealgan, Maryfield, Sancta Sabina and Marley Nursing Homes are gradually receiving their vaccinations.
Pope Francis Prayer to Mary for protection from Coronavirus
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
