Holy Wednesday – Anointing of the Sick

Most of us will not be able to participate in this rite personally this year but we can still pray. In a special way let us pray for all afflicted with the corona virus.

“… Yes, O Lord, send down your healing power from heaven, touch the body, quench the fever, ease the suffering, and drive out every lurking ailment. Be a physician to your servant/s. Raise him (her) (them) from the sick-bed, the bed of affliction, give him (her) (them) to your church whole and fully cured, well-pleasing to you and doing your will. For yours are mercy and salvation, O our God, and we give glory to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.
