Please pray for Mexico, no Sunday Masses in the City due to Swine Flu


#1

Please pray for the people living in Mexico.
The situation is serious.
In order to preven further transmission of the disease many public places will remain closed and there will not be any Masses this Sunday and possibly also during the week.
The Archbishop will read (during a Mass that will be transmited on the radio) a prayer asking for the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
I copy it here so that those of you who speak Spanish may pray it with us.
thanks,
Alma

ORACIÓN A LA VIRGEN DE GUADALUPE
PARA ENCOMENDARLE A MÉXICO
POR LA EPIDEMIA DE INFLUENZA

Santa María de Guadalupe:
A ti que nos amas con especial ternura,
velas por nosotros con maternal intercesión
y nos procuras siempre tu eficaz ayuda
suplicamos tu protección y auxilio
para superar pronto esta epidemia
que ha venido a afectar nuestra nación.

Cúbrenos con tu manto,
líbranos de este mal.

Ruega por todas las autoridades
y por quienes tienen poder de decisión
para que sepan establecer medidas y prioridades
para prevenir y ayudar a toda la población,
y en particular a quienes son más vulnerables.

Concédenos prudencia y serenidad
para actuar con mucha responsabilidad
y así evitar ser contagiados o contagiar.

Socorre al personal de salud,
vela por la recuperación de los enfermos
y sé consuelo de quien se encuentra en duelo.

Madre del Verdadero Dios por quien se vive,
Tú que nos has rescatado de otras plagas,
encomiéndanos a la misericordia
de Aquel que nos sanó con Sus llagas
y nos libró de la muerte con Su Resurrección.

Enséñanos a unir nuestro dolor al Suyo
para hallarle sentido redentor
y salir de esta adversidad fortalecidos
en la fe, la esperanza y el amor.

AMÉN

How sad. I will pray for them. Winter is coming in a few months in Australia and there are fears that this will flu will spread globally. I am going to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory and obtain their intercession for the protection of my family and others from all strains of the flu.

Our God, please have mercy on those who are ill in Mexico. Please protect those who are well from contracting this illness…

Please have mercy on Your peple who are unable to go to Mass

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent,
but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is love and mercy itself

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
