Prayer to St. Joseph. “Hail, Guardian of the redeemer, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God en-trusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man. Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life. Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen”

A Prayer to End the Coronavirus: Loving Father, may the merits of your son’s death on the cross gain for us the protection from this virus. Protect the nations, this community, my family and friends from all harm. In your mercy halt the spread of this virus so that others will not suffer. Let the light of your glory destroy this virus and cleanse the world. May Mary our mother intercede for us in hour. May all the saints petition you for your mercy. May Jesus your son who died for love of us grant us healing. We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
