Swine Flu


It looks like the swine flu is back and worse than ever. Last time I’m sure our prayers did much to stop it, so let’s gather together and ask God to end it again.

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Hear our prayers
And the prayers of the sick.
Heal those who suffer from the swine flu
Throughout the world it has taken enough lives.
Help and guide the doctors and nurses fighting it
And help and guide the patients fighting it within
That they may both have no fear
Nor be overwhelmed
But stand steadfast and strong
And through perseverance
Defeat the sickness.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for those suffering with the swine flu.

St. Roch, pray for those suffering with the swine flu.




Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence we fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother.
To thee do we come; before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in they mercy hear and answer them. Amen.




Swine flu is not necessarily more dangerous than any other flu, so please do not panic. OTOH, don’t be careless, either. Especially around elderly and sick people. I will try to find a link that points out the most vulnerable.


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;
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. 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
