To Him

Each morning at the end of the community Mass, we pray the following prayer:

O God, whose Only Begotten Son bore the weight of human suffering
for our salvation, hear the prayers of your Church
for our sick brothers and sisters
and deliver us from this time of trial.
Open our ears and our hearts to the voice of your Son:
Be not afraid, for I am with you always.
Bless all doctors and nurses, researchers and public servants;
give us the wisdom to do what is right and the faith to endure this hour, that we might gather once again to praise your name in the heart of your Church, delivered from all distress and confident in your mercy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We go constantly to the Lord Jesus. To whom else can we go? He promises to hear us.
