Pray with us this Marian invocation

On the occasion of the Christian-Muslim Feast of the Annunciation

Pray with us this Marian invocation

On balconies, holding candles, on Wednesday 25 march, 2020, at 7:00 PM

 


God, our Lord, Lord of all creation and of humanity in its entirety

You who have chosen Mary and elected her among all women

Sending her the angel Gabriel to announce to her the good news

That we celebrate together Christians and Muslims

Our Lord, the Merciful, the Compassionate, the One who loves all of humankind

You who have given us the blessing of life, save us from the danger of this pandemic

O Lord, make of the Virgin Mary a model for us in our lives

May her example motivate us to hold on to our unity in the face of hardships and challenges

And to have confidence in Your Providence instead of giving in to fear or pride

So that we may, like her, show solidarity and serve others in all gratuity

Our Lord, You are the All Hearing, the One who supports

Assist the paramedics, the nurses, and the doctors

Heal the sick and Console the grieving

Give those who are in need their sustenance and their needs

We implore Your assistance

to remain dedicated to You

and faithful to each other

Amen
