O Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, you are consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of those who are ill. We beg you, assist us in all our needs and in all the sufferings of this life. You are the “medicine of God”. We humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of our souls and the ills that afflict our bodies. We especially ask of you the favor of your intercession before God for those who suffer from the illness now spreading across the world, and for the great grace for us to help those who are stricken in body and soul. Saint Raphael, as once you guided the young Tobias on his travels, guide us through these difficult times.
