In these recent days of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, many of our religious have died.
I would like to ask that we pray for all our priests, sisters, brothers, and nuns who suffer with COVID-19, chronic pain, for those who are sick with terminal illnesses, for those trapped in a body fallen to coma, and for those in the end stages of life.
Let us also pray for the religious, and all caretakers, who care for their ailing brothers and sisters physically and spiritually, that those who serve the suffering have endurance during such trials.

Today, once more, sow your words in the hearts of our Sisters and Nuns. Till patiently the soil of their souls so they may continue to be fruitful and bring to you a rich harvest.
Let their nourished souls bring the Holy Spirit to nourish our lives. We ask all this in Jesus name.

O Christ of the Ascension, we pray that You will strengthen and refresh those holy women who have answered Your call to be set apart with You. They are for the world a sign and symbol of the faith You ask of each of us; they sustain us through their prayers and the work of their hands. We ask that You sustain them in kind, Lord. Let Your grace fill them with love, that they may delight in serving You today, and rejoice. May You bring laughter, light, and peace to each of them, and to their communities. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

Beloved Mother Mary, Mother of Sisters and Nuns, take to your heart your daughters who are close to you because of their calling by your son, and because of the grace which they have received to carry on his work in a world which needs them so much. In this holy season of Easter be their comfort, be their joy, and be their strength. Loving Mother help them to live and defend the ideals that your son suffered and died for so that we may have life eternal. Amen.

Gracious St. Joseph, protect our sisters and nuns from all evil as you did the Holy Family.
Kindly keep them ever united in the love of Christ, ever fervent in imitation of the virtue of our Blessed Mother, your sinless spouse, and always faithful in devotion to you.
St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, protect the Jesus awakening in each of our sisters and nuns.
