St. Aloysius of Gonzaga Novena Prayer
St. Aloysius Gonzaga, patron of youth
and of pandemic victims, come to our aid.
While risking your own life,
you took care of the poor, the sick, and the dying.
You know our insecurity, anxiety, and despair.
Help us protect and support one another now.
Through your intercession,
may God transform our fear into hope.
We ask you to pray to God for us
that we might receive the favors we ask for in this novena
(here mention your prayer intentions).
Most Merciful and Triune God,
We come to you in our weakness.
We come to you in our fear.
We come to you with trust.
For you alone are our hope.
We place before you the disease present in our world.
We turn to you in our time of need.
Bring wisdom to doctors.
Give understanding to scientists.
Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity.
Bring healing to those who are ill.
Protect those who are most at risk.
Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
Welcome those who have died into your Eternal Home.
Stabilize our communities.
Unite us in our compassion.
Remove all fear from our hearts.
Fill us with confidence in Your care.
Heal us in body, mind, and spirit.
We ask these favors through the intercession of St. Aloysius Gonzaga,
for the good of all God’s people
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
