August 2020 Day of Prayer for the Healing of Cancer
Throughout today’s liturgies at the National Shrine of St. Jude, we will pray in a special way for all those who suffer from cancer. Join us today, and on the first Wednesday of every month, as we call upon St. Jude’s intercession for the healing of cancer.
This month, we also continue to pray in a special way for the healing of those with COVID-19, those who are more susceptible to contracting the virus, and those who care for them.
We pray together: God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer or COVID-19, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Claretians are grateful for the opportunity to pray for you to our patron, St. Jude. Visit our online Prayer Circle and share your prayers with our community of devotion.
