Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
Prayer to St. Corona in
a Time of Epidemic
Lord Jesus Christ,
You came into this world
for our salvation.
Look kindly on us now, we pray,
that we, and all those who serve You,
might be kept safe from this epidemic.
Heal those who are sick,
comfort the suffering, bring back
those who have gone astray, and
above all, increase our faith, O Lord.
Give us the grace to follow You and,
like the martyr St. Corona, who gave
her life for love of You, to take up our
crosses daily without fear or hesitation.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the
living God, have mercy on us and
on the whole world.
St. Corona, patroness of
epidemic victims, pray for us.
