“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” Psalm 23
Dear Lord, during these days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we come to you seeking comfort and peace. The challenges of the pandemic have caused us all to ponder the relationships that sustain us on our faith journey. We long for a deeper and closer relationship with you, and with your Holy Mother, Mary. O loving Good Shepherd, we believe that you have called us each by name and that we are not alone. We are comforted with that knowledge and know you are counting on us to extend your love and care to others. As we continue to journey through these troubling pandemic days, we trust that you continue to guide us, and we give thanks.
O loving Mary, as our Patroness under the name of Our Lady of Good Counsel, we come to you seeking your help and intercession during these difficult days. Help us to trust as you trusted when you faced the unknown and uncertainties. We come to you with our cares and worries looking for signs of hope for the future. We pray that the whole world will soon be healed from this pandemic. O loving Mother, we ask that you gift us with your kindness and mercy, that we may follow your model as we help each other, pray for each other, and pray for the whole world. Thank you, Mary, for your wise counsel and for helping us on our faith journey; and we give praise and thanks to the Good Shepherd, as he leads us safely home Amen.
As we ponder our role to follow you and to be good shepherds, we know the road can be difficult. We are deeply grateful for your Holy Mother, Mary, who intercedes to you on our behalf.
