29th MARCH 2020: THE REDEDICATION OF ENGLAND AS DOWRY OF MARY

29th MARCH 2020: TODAY THE SOLEMN REDEDICATION OF ENGLAND AS DOWRY OF MARY TAKES PLACE

(The original dedication of England as Dowry of Mary was during the time of King Richard II. The Mass and ceremonies today are led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Head of the English Bishops’ Conference, and live streamed throughout the world. Clergy, religious and lay faithful join in their monasteries/homes)

PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England, thy Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in thee.

By thee it was that Jesus, our Saviour and our hope, was given unto the world and He has given thee to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the cross, O sorrowful Mother.

Intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold, they may be united to the Chief Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith, fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee in our heavenly home. Amen.

PRAYER TO ST ROCHE AGAINST CONTAGIOUS ILLNESSES

PRAYER TO ST ROCHE AGAINST CONTAGIOUS ILLNESSES

Prayer to Saint Roche, patron against contagious illnesses

O blessed St Roche, patron of the sick, have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering. Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the Sign of the Cross, many were healed of their diseases. Now that you are in heaven, your power is not less. Offer, then, to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us that health we seek, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Repeat the following 3 times:
“Saint Roche, pray for us, that we may be preserved from all diseases of body and soul. Amen.”
