Prayer for Covid patients
I your Lord stand with you.
I stand with you says the Lord,
I will be at your side it times of trouble.
When you call for help. I am there.
When feeling loneliness
I am there to be your friend.
I will hold you up if you are falling down.
When your friends show you love I am there,
they make me present.
I will carry you through the dark,
I will be your light to guide and give you strength.
Trust me and together we will overcome.
Your life of goodness will carry you to me.
You have been with me when you helped the needy.
You were a friend to the friendless,
You made me present to those in sorrow,
You shared my friendship in kindness to others.
You were a support to those in sorrow.
Your weakness and failings are forgiven and forgotten.
Let your heart be strong for goodness and
Love is with you. I your Lord and friend am with you always.
A Quote to Remember
'One of the important spiritual traits of your service in the Church is your commitment to the spirit of authentic evangelical charity. At the Last Supper the Lord stated clearly and for all time that fraternal love would be the distinctive feature of his followers: "By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another" (Jn 13: 35). It has been your desire to take up this evangelical challenge, placing particular emphasis on the fraternal warmth of your interpersonal relations, and furthering the spirit of charity in thought and word, passing over in silence the errors of others and bringing up only those deeds of theirs which are positive and helpful. May the Lord preserve you in this spirit, helping you to bear witness in every way to that Christian charity which St Paul so masterfully described in the famous hymn to love found in his First Letter to the Corinthians (1 Cor 13: 4-8)."
