The 'Dominican Window', 1886: 15 years before the Redemptorists came.

A NOVENA PRAYER FOR THIS TIME 

Mother of Perpetual Help, 

with the greatest confidence

we come before your holy picture

to beseech your intercession.

We think of you, Mother, at the foot of the cross.

Your heart must have bled to see your Son in agony.

But your joy was great when he rose from the dead,

victorious over the powers of evil.

Mother of Sorrows, 

pray for us in this time of trial.

Help us not to lose heart.

Intercede for your people who are afflicted with Coronavirus.

Comfort your people who are vulnerable and anxious. 

Protect healthcare workers who put their lives at risk.

Inspire our leaders to make good decisions.

Change our hearts so that we may act responsibly.

Teach us to trust in God’s love and mercy,

And to share with you

the joy of having courageously 

faced up to all the challenges of life. 

Amen.
