  • PRAYER TO GOD THROUGH THE INTERCESSIONS OF SAINT IRENE AND SAINT SEBASTIAN



    Oh, glorious Saint Irene and Saint Sebastian, we beg your intercession on humanity’s behalf to provide the graces necessary to combat with confidence in our Triune God’s power the contagion that currently confronts us.

    Help us to see with eyes of faith the extraordinary graces we possess in the ordinariness of our day.  Help all to know of your assurances on our behalf before the throne of God; enabling us with those special graces to be Our Father in Heaven’s children, Jesus Christ’s brothers and sisters, and the Holy Spirit’s companion in life’s trials and tribulations.

    Oh, Saint Irene grant to us, through your example as nurse to Saint Sebastian, compassion and mercy in dealing with those afflicted in mind or body during this time of contagion. Through your intercession and our prayers, help us to become before each other the example of concern, compassion, and service to the needs of others – exemplifying Christ’s love for all of humanity. Help us in our humility to listen and discern all things well. Guide us in our fears and anxieties that they may be calmed by the reassurances of the matters that occur in Divine Providence.

    Oh, Saint Sebastian grant to us through your example to remain confident in God despite the arrows that afflict us, and guide us to know of the true return to good health which is most importantly spiritual. Guide all as they endure their struggles to remain soldiers for Christ and to impart the confidence that can only exist in the gift of Faith given to humanity.

    Saint Irene and Saint Sebastian protect our medical professionals and first responders to remain in good health. Inspire through the work of God’s grace those who are to glorify God in finding the treatments and cure to what afflicts us at this time. We thank you for your care and for your intercession.

    Pray for us, Saint Irene.

    That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Pray for us, Saint Sebastian.

    That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Grant us, Oh Lord, we beg you, “to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one” (Eph. 6:16b), who did grant unto Saint Sebastian, the famous Martyr, the defender of the Church, and the repeller of plague to overcome the torments of his arrows. Grant us also to possess the graces and healing touch of words and actions that were endowed in your servant Saint Irene, that we too may be an instrument of resuscitation for those lacking breath in you. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

     Amen.
