We are reciting the following prayer after all Masses. For full updates on how Coronavirus might affect Masses, see our website.

A prayer in time of sickness
I am the salvation of the people, says the Lord. Should they cry to me in any distress, I will hear them, and I will be their Lord forever.

Let us pray.
O God, our refuge in trials, our strength in sickness, our comfort in sorrow, spare your people, we pray, that, though rightly chastised now by affliction, they may find relief at last through your loving mercy. Remember your people, O Lord, and grant them your help, that, freed from every evil, they may serve you with all their heart and ever stand firm under your protection. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

We fly to thy protection, O holy Mother of God: despise not our petitions in our necessities; but deliver us from all dangers, O ever glorious and blessed Virgin.

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God:
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.
Defend, O Lord, we beseech you, by the intercession of blessed Mary, ever virgin, this your family from all adversity; and mercifully protect us, who prostrate ourselves before you with all our hearts, from the snares of the enemy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. #oxfordoratory
